Democracy - “Develop an understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process”.
Democracy is at the heart of Hugh Sexey Church of England Middle Schools aims and ethos; Staff encourage children to know that their views count, to value each other’s views and to talk about their feelings. This voice can be through using words, objects, photographs, symbols and body language. The election of Year Council NS House Captain members reflects the British electoral system. Pupils consider the necessary characteristics for an effective pupil council member and vote using a secret ballot. The Pupil Council meet regularly to bring suggestions from their peers and make decisions about ways to improve the school for the benefit of all.
