The principle of democracy is consistently being reinforced at Dawley Brook Primary School with democratic processes being used for important decisions within the school community. Children across the school are involved in democratic processes where they have the opportunity to have their voices heard through our School Council, Pupil Questionnaires and Suggestion Boxes.
School Council representatives are elected by their peers and have a responsibility to report back to the rest of their class. The School Council have regular meetings and children are encouraged to contribute ideas.
The school has developed a fair and consistent Behaviour Policy with agreed rewards and sanctions. The principle of democracy is also explored in the History and Religious Studies curriculum as well as in class based Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (S.E.A.L) sessions and whole school assemblies.
