Votes For Schools

VotesforSchools provides weekly resources for teachers to prompt impartial discussion on a challenging current issue. Our students get the opportunity to vote and comment and we ensure that their voices are heard and have an impact.

Be Informed. Be Curious. Be Heard.

At Lower Fields Primary Academy, we are passionate about our children’s voices having an impact on practice and policy- to really make a mark on their world. In addition to amplifying our weekly results, we work with a range of long-term partners who help elevate those voices to a whole new level.
