Promoting Fundamental British Values

At Plymtree the pupils take an active role in decision making for the school. The children use a democratic voting system to elect their school council. Using a democratic voting system across the school new resources are purchased; for example the pupils were included in selecting new books for the school. The School Council take an active role in meeting monthly and liaising with Heads of Schools regarding decision making for Charity days, Educational days, Curriculum studies and School visits.

We actively plan visits from our Community Police officers to work with the children; to raise pupil’s awareness of the law in Britain and their role as good citizens of today and the future.
