School Council

Democracy is an important part of how we operate at The Federation of Bursledon Schools.   An example of this is our School Council. The election of the class School Council member reflects our British electoral system and demonstrates democracy in action: candidates make speeches, children consider characteristics important for an elected representative and children have the opportunity to vote for who they would like elected. The School Council meet regularly to discuss issues raised by the different classes. These meetings have a significant impact on change within the school. 


Our MP visit

Last Friday our local MP Paul Holmes visited our schools to talk to our school council. They confidently spoke about what they do, how they were elected and what their current actions are. We talked about our manifesto and what the councillors' current concerns are within the community. Oliver and Daniel expressed our concerns about the busy road outside both schools. Paul said he would raise our concerns with the local authority and advise us on what we can do as next steps.  We are also hoping that Paul will arrange a trip to Westminster in the near future! Watch this space!
