Aston St Mary's Church of England Primary School recently held elections for their School Council and invited their local Member of Parliament, Stephen McPartland, along to answer questions from the pupils and present the new councillors with their badges at a special school assembly.

Stephen McPartland MP said, "I was delighted to award the newly elected School Councillors with their badges and look forward to hearing more about their work. It is always very important to me that each class has elected representatives to make sure ideas can be put forward from each year."

Head teacher, Julie Winwood, added, "We are teaching our pupils one of our British values - democracy. School Councils give pupils a voice and helps them understand how democracy can influence decision making at all levels."

The School Councillors are elected by their class to represent their views and work together to help make improvements to the school. The School Councillors work together with Julie and volunteer, Dennis Preston, who help guide the children.
