This year we have 4 Pupil Voice teams: School Council, Hen Council, Sports Council and Eco Team who have been elected by their class. Each team will meet every fortnight so that pupils' views can be gathered and shared. Already, the School Council has decided to promote 'Helping Hands in Rochford' so that parcels can once again be delivered to elderly and vulnerable people in our community.

At Holt Farm Junior School, we uphold and promote an understanding of fundamental British values. We ensure that all our children are taught about democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. Here are some of the ways in which British Values are recognised and promoted at our school:

·The school ethos and behaviour policy revolve around 'respect' as one of our core values, and discussions and assemblies focus on what respect means and how it is shown;

·We actively promote diversity through celebrations of different faiths and cultures in lessons and assemblies;

·We explore a wide range of themes that cover tolerance, mutual respect and democracy through lessons such as PSHCE and RE.

 E-safety is covered through our computing curriculum and awareness activities throughout the year;

·Our children have the opportunity to analyse events in UK and world history where British values have been tested;

·We promote British values in newsletters and assemblies;

·Pupils are given the freedom to make personal choices such as the choice of challenge in lessons, the choice to participate in one of our numerous extra-curricular clubs;

·Democracy is promoted through our active, elected School Council and regular pupil votes on issues of importance to them;

·Pupil voice is regularly sought through pupil questionnaires and perception interviews as part of ongoing whole school self-evaluation;
