On the day of the General Election pupils in years 7 to 11 had the opportunity to experience voting in an election. The sixth form common room became the polling station and the sixth formers performed the duties of electoral officials and returning officers. This was the culmination of two weeks of discussions and analysis in tutor time and Citizenship & PSHEE lessons. Pupils were challenged to consider a range of issues that election campaigning raises such as the role of the media, the use of statistics, the question of style over substance and the importance of considering what is best for the common good. Opportunities will be made for pupils to reflect on the results of the actual General Election and how they can continue they own understanding of our democratic system.
