Parklands Community Primary School in Little Sutton celebrated the day of the General Election by creating a polling station in their very own school hall.
Pupils at Parklands found out about the different parties involved in the election and the process of voting.
A group of election officers were responsible for checking names of pupils arriving at the Parklands polling station to vote and for ensuring that ballot papers were distributed correctly.
Every child, including children in nursery, had the opportunity to cast their vote and place it in the secure ballot box, which was guarded by the election team.
Ros Flanders, headteacher at Parklands, said: “We feel that it is very important for children to understand about the democratic systems in our country.
“The election was a way of bringing the election process to life for Parklands pupils to prepare them to be active and responsible citizens in the future.”
Deputy headteacher, Michael Roberts, added: “The election officers really understood the importance of their role and did a fantastic job to ensure the smooth running of the Parklands general election.”
Further activities to support children in understanding democracy and promote British values are planned, including a visit from a local councillor.
