At Old Park we have a Magna Carta to establish our pupils’ rights. The school council representatives asked their own classes what they would like to see on our schools Magna Carta and then discussed this within a school council meeting. The Magna Carta was then produced by school council, in consideration of the whole schools pupil views.
