Throughout their time at Waberthwaite C of E School, pupils are given the opportunity to discuss and share their views on a range of topics. This may be, for example, as a part of a debate in an English lesson, or during school council sessions and meetings.
Children can express their views about the school via the school council. Students have the opportunity to vote for their class representatives on the council, and they are encouraged to lead the drive for improvement and change democratically.
This provides children with valuable experience about the workings of democracy.
We also take part in Parliament week and learn all about how laws are made and the workings of the Government.
