Votes for Schools provides weekly resources to prompt discussion on a challenging current issue. We have weekly assemblies and discussion sessions where children are allowed to share their thoughts and ideas around issues raised in the news and media. Children vote and comment and we ensure that their voices are heard and have an impact.
A weekly vote pack in PowerPoint format is presented to the children each week. Children discuss the materials and vote, and the results are compared with how other children have voted across the country
It is an effective tool for delivering SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social, and Cultural) development and supports British Values, Prevent, PSHE and Citizenship through whole class discussion.
