Democracy in action

At Mayfield, we develop children’s understanding of Democracy by teaching children that their opinions are important, and that each child’s thoughts and feelings should be listened to and valued. We teach children that sometimes we are given the power to choose and make decisions as individuals and as a group.

Democracy skills are promoted through personal, social and emotional development across school, for example: within curriculum units (eg: Yr5: Parliament Week), Class Councils, School Council, House Teams, assemblies and through enrichment opportunities, such as when children visited the Council Chambers.
