A School Celebration!

8 Mar 2017

High Down Junior School

“A week-long whole-school celebration, where our 390 KS2 children learnt about the three parts of parliament and voting/democracy/representation in the UK. We used Education Service resources, held a Skype session with Mr Speaker John Bercow, and were visited by local MP Liam Fox and several Portishead Town councillors.

Benefits of being a UK Parliament Week partner include the resources, a big tick for the British Values box in the national curriculum, and the opportunity to make links with other local schools or organisations. It was also a unique and effective way to raise the profile of our school in the Portishead and North Somerset community.

UK Parliament Week was a highly enjoyable and enriching experience for everyone involved, and a pleasure to organise.”

Ben Culverhouse – Class Teacher
