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.
