Democracy - A school visit by the Parliamentary Education Service

The school was pleased to host a visit yesterday afternoon to kick start the new term. Our kind visitor explained the history of the Houses of Parliament and the foundations of and way our democracy works. Children were fascinated by the history of the buildings. We hope that this has inspired them to engage in current affairs and take an interest in the decisions that adults make on their behalf.

We know that there are many places around the world where people are not afforded the luxury of a modern democracy, one of the most important of our British Values and one that we should all be mindful to take advantage of.
