How we promote it at Dymchurch



  • We have an elected school council. This is used as an opportunity to promote and teach about democracy and the electoral process.
  • All pupils in the school take part in an annual questionnaire to find out how they think we can improve the school. Pupils’ ideas are included in the annual School Improvement Plan.
  • We encourage our pupils to volunteer in and out of school. This includes being sports captains, house captains, play leaders, and also raising money for local and national charities
  • The beginnings of democracy are taught through historical research of the Ancient Greek civilisation.
  • Democracy is also promoted through additional PSHE lessons and assemblies.
  • Children take part in a mock election during election years.
