Woodkirk's Values

Mr Zwalf, one of our Government and Politics teachers, has been presenting to the whole school the importance of democracy in the UK. 

Democracy can be seen as a state of society characterised by equality of rights and privileges. It can also refer to our nation’s electoral systems.

In school we promote the importance of democracy through such things as:  

  • The free and fair electoral process for student positions of responsibility;
  • Students being encouraged to consider alternative pathways in lessons;
  • Student Voice on key school decisions through processes including online whole school surveying.
  •  Students also select Form Reps to represent them who, then, feedback to the full Student Leadership Group (SLG)
