'It's been an amazing way to allow all the children to have a voice. The Smart School council model has completely changed the way our school council works and it is so much better now so thank you so much!"

Tracie, Hillview Primary, Gloucester


'It has raised the whole profile of what democracy is. It links really well to our British values agenda. Half-termly class meetings have become a real focus and children are genuinely excited to hear the results!

Mandy, Dovelands School, Leicester
