Promoting British Values at Carr Lodge Academy
Carr Lodge Academy promotes and upholds the British Values of Democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance. We have created 12 Strands in which we teach and promote these values throughout the academy.
An understanding of democracy is developed through our academy’s Pupil Parliament. Following a vote, each class elects a Member of Parliament. The house (Eagles, Falcons, Ospreys or Hawks) with the most votes become the ‘party’ to lead Parliament with the other houses taking ‘seats’ within the Parliament. The Parliament meets once a month to bring to the table any issues or ideas from their constituents. In addition, they are consulted about their ideas for academy improvement and in policy making.
Carr Lodge’s Members of Pupil Parliament:
- Meet regularly to discuss topics, issues and initiatives that affect the children’s learning and learning environment.
- Organise their own meetings.
- Decide on their agenda.
- Share ideas from their constituents.
- Vote on a number of school-related issues.
There are two MPP for each class from Year 1 to Year 6 voted for and elected by their class mates. The current party leading Pupil Parliament at Carr Lodge Academy is: Eagles.
The lead party take on the roles of Chair Person and Secretary within the meetings. Meeting minutes are shared on the Pupil Parliament display board inside the academy.
