Democracy in Action at Clevedon School

Clevedon School students enjoyed a day in Weston's Council Chamber - coming up with own ideas to make their outstanding school even better.

The inspirational students heard a talk from long-serving councillor John Crockford-Hawley at the Council Chambers in Weston-super-Mare, before leaping into their debates about how to help make their Outstanding school exceptional in every way. 

They came up with their well-debated list of improvements at the same time as the Queen prepared to deliver the Queen's Speech in London.

Students were able to discuss what the like about teaching and learning, changing the time of the school day, homework, and about adding to their long list of award-winning achievements including peer listeners, digital leaders and subject ambassadors.

They also put forward their views on how they could make the school environment exceptional including zero tolerance on litter, and even more seating areas and walk only zones.

Clevedon School is an Ofsted outstanding, high-performing school which is part of the innovative and expanding Clevedon Learning Trust.

Rose Fox, Head of Student Voice and Safeguarding, said: "It was wonderful for the students to be at the heart of democracy and to debate and come up with their own ideas of improvements to our fantastic school."
