Ark Blacklands General Election

Thursday 12 December 2019

Today Miss Emary, our Pupil Council Lead, organised for UKS2 to take part in a Blacklands General Election. All children in year 5 and 6 had the opportunity to vote for one of the 4 major parties at specially created polling stations.
The results for this morning's elections were...

A total of 139 pupils voted and 1 adult (Miss Saxby)
Jeremy Corbyn 73 (52.14%)
Sian Berry 35 (25%)
Boris Johnson 17 (12.14%)
Jo Swinson 14 (10%)

Huge thanks to all involved in providing this opportunity for the children to better understand our political system.
