Preparing for life in modern Britain

Maiden Erlegh School in Reading is committed to preparing its pupils for life in modern Britain by ensuring that they have not just the right knowledge, skills and understanding, but also the right values to be active citizens who are capable of responding positively to the opportunities and challenges of a rapidly changing and increasingly diverse world.

Pupils are given opportunities to learn first-hand about  active citizenship and democracy through local elections for the posts of  tutor representatives and by serving on the School Council. Tutor representatives  take soundings from their peers and then take these views to the School Council for discussion. Tutor representatives then feedback the minutes and  Council’s views to their tutor group. In this way our pupils learn to become active citizens with a voice and a stake in the development of their school.

The photographs show the very first group of tutor representatives to be elected by their tutor groups as they received their tutor representative badges in assembly.
