EU Referendum

Today's assembly, focussed on the British Value of democracy, centred around the EU referendum.  We discussed the vote as a way of giving everyone a voice in the debate, as well as looking in some detail at the EU, its role and the differing opinions on its effectiveness.  Finally, every child was given the opportunity to vote to either 'Leave' or 'Remain'.  The majority of children at Lockerley chose to remain in the EU.  We have passed this decision onto the editor of First News who will cast her vote on the 23rd June, in line with the majority of children's votes that she receives.  We wait to see whether the decision of Lockerley children reflects the mood of the nation!
