Pupils at Bourne Abbey CE and Bourne Elsea Park CE primary academies went to the polls last week to elect members of their school councils for this academic year.

Pupils also learned about how democratic elections work - the process used in the school council elections to ensure a fair result. Would-be representatives campaigned and each pupil voted for their chosen candidate, putting their marked paper into the ballot box ready for counting and the election declaration.
