Kingsley Academy Decides

Students at Kingsley Academy are currently engaged in Mock Election activities leading up to Election Day, Thursday 7th May 2015 when all students will have the chance to vote in a Mock Election. Students will vote either for the Conservative Party, the Labour Party or the Liberal Democrats. 


The 3 Candidates - Moataz (Conservative candidate), Krishma (Labour candidate) and Aixa (Liberal Democrat candidate) and  are leading Election Campaign Teams consisting of students from across all Year Groups and have already delivered their first set of speeches in an assembly. They will also participate in an after school Political Debate to which students, staff, parents and Governors will be invited to attend. During the debate Candidates will go head to head on a range of issues – immigration, education, health, employment, crime, the economy etc. Candidates will give short speeches followed by Questions and Answers from the electorate.


On Election Day the ‘Polling Station’ will close at 1:00 pm, after which the Counting Clerks will count the votes.  Once all the votes have been counted and the winner has been confirmed, the Returning Officer will visit the Principal’s office to inform the Principal of what Kingsley Academy has decided. The Principal will email to all staff what Kingsley Academy decided and Tutors will tell their Tutor Groups during Tutor Time.


The Mock Election at Kingsley Academy:

  • is providing students with the opportunity to gain a sound understanding of the principles of democracy and politics in action as we bring the political process to life through an interactive, engaging and exciting drama of a real election, at our Academy.
  • is actively engaging students with the issues that concern them by giving them the opportunity to stand as party candidates, run campaigns and vote on Election Day.
  • is giving students the chance to develop their public speaking, debating, organisational and time management skills and teamwork.
  • is an opportunity for the Kingsley Academy Community to work together on a single Project. (more...)
