Democracy

The children at Dee Point are given many opportunities to further their understanding of democracy and how this impacts real-life situations both in and out of the classroom. Each year, the children decide upon their class charter and the rights associated with this. All the children contribute to the drawing up of the charter, and this is regularly reinforced and promoted to support them in the classroom.

Children at Dee Point have many opportunities for their voices to be heard. Through initiatives such as our ‘Sports Leader’ and ‘Peer Tutoring’ programs, they are given the opportunity to meet regularly and affect change within our school. Additionally, children are asked to complete an annual questionnaire, in which they are able to put forward their views about the school.

Each year, Dee Point play a key role in a local ‘Democracy Project.’ As part of this project, children from years 5 and 6 are elected to represent the school. Each half term, all the schools in Blacon gather together and debate subjects which really matter to them. Our first debate of the year took place at Blacon High School on Friday 11th November where we talked about subjects we would like to discuss this year. Subjects raised included homelessness, fossil fuels and  deforestation amongst others. Our representatives this year are Nevaeh and Amelia from year 6 and Jack and Max from year 5.

Our next event will be a debate on Friday 2nd December when we will be looking at what makes a good politician. Look out for our updates then!
