As part of the Prevent Strategy at Tatworth Primary School we promotes the British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. Our activities include:
School Council: Two members of each class, are elected by their peers to represent their class as School Councillors. Selecting the councillors allows us to explore democracy in action and ensures pupils voices are heard on all aspects of school life.
Classes hold a Class Council meeting (within their classroom) then the School Councillor feeds this back to the School Council team. Each School Councillor will lead the Class Council session and record their classes’ ideas and answers to the questions posed.
During 2018/19 the School Council proposals included writing playtime rules and setting up the Gold Card system so that good work can be immediately recognised and rewarded.
During 2018/19 we will be introducing an Eco-Council.
Children are also able to nominate themselves to be Play Leaders and Librarians.
