Beech House School Election Fever

Beech House School Election Fever



As the General Election gripped the nation, Beech House School created their own Election ‘promises’, to ensure all children were taught the value of Democracy as part of their ‘British Values’ curriculum.



The children in Year 10 were allocated a political party name – but definitely had no links to the actual parties – and created a considerate and thoughtful manifesto before embarking on a hard fought political campaign on the lead up to June 8th. The candidates visited each class throughout their campaign, spending time with the ‘electorate’ and trying to gain the upper hand in the process.



Some of the main points from each policy included; longer breaks for pupils, going home for lunchtimes, finishing earlier on a Friday and more vending machines.



The process was supported by the whole school community, as Year 9 children ran the  voting process by verifying names, organising the electorate and sorting the ballot papers and box.



However, after all votes were counted and verified (by Year 3), The Returning Officer declared the result as follows:



Conservatives Jasmine Slater and Daisi Daniels)– 16 votes



Green Party (Harris Husnain and Isabella Zebedee-Howard) – 20 votes



Labour (Jawad Mehbood and Fiza Ahmed)– 25 votes



Liberal Democrats (Sara Karim and Gareth Tattersall) – 7 votes



UKIP (Mehmoona Naqvi and Adam Deng) – 66 votes



UKIP, Led by Mehmoona Naqvi and Adam Deng, declared as victors, stated that they would they would like lessons outside, allow the older children to go outside of school during lunchtimes, use the school Wifi on personal devices and change the school uniform.



The hard work for the newly elected politicians now starts by trying to convince the Head, Mr Sartain, into the changes.
