For generations, parents have found themselves visiting primary schools with their children only to hear themselves saying, “It’s not like when I was at school.” Things change quickly in education, and at no time in the past 25 years has that been truer than September 2014 when the whole school curriculum changed for maintained schools throughout England.
At Woodfield Community Primary School, we strongly believe that our children have a big role to play in the development of our school. That's why we have re-established our School Council from September 2017.
There was a real buzz around the school as children were preparing their speeches to their class as to why they should be elected and then a secret ballot was held. This helped us to understand DEMOCRACY, one of our British Values.
