Democracy is richly embedded within the centre. Students have the opportunity to have their voices heard through our (PSD) Personal Social Development and Prince’s Trust programmes as the students spend a term looking at declaration of human rights, personal uniqueness, national and global identity and what it means to be ‘British’.  Student voice, student questionnaires, meetings with the senior leadership team and link mentors also form our targeted approach to democracy. Our behaviour and values policies involve rewards and sanctions; this is shared through all aspects of DESC life and also shared with parents, carers and young people.
