The School: Kenmont Primary School

Located in the Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, Kenmont Primary School is in their second year of working as a Partner School with Enabling Enterprise. They have worked on a number of lesson time projects to develop their enterprise skills. Key Stage 2 students have already applied these skills on a couple of business trips this year including London Business School and the law firm Baker & McKenzie. Today the whole school rose to the tricky challenge of becoming political entrepreneurs.

The Challenge: A Day in Politics

As the school premises were only 24 hours away from serving as a polling station for the General Election, Kenmont Primary School seized the perfect opportunity for a whole-school Day in Politics. The students were excited to apply their knowledge of politics as well as their enterprise skills to this challenge of creating their own political party. Using their persuasive language skills, they took part in lively debates and voted for motions they would put forward in their manifestos.

The Results:

Everyone worked so hard to create the most impressive advertising materials for their own party. All teachers and children looked forward to listening to the most effective speeches, and more crucially, running their very special election to decide which party had the most convincing policies and promises.

What they said:

  • “Year 2 have really enjoyed a Day in Politics! We now have some very eager politicians who want to change the world!” – Mrs Phillips, Year 2 Teacher, Kenmont Primary School
  • “What I liked best was the debate because you get to argue with people, but in a polite way. Also, we were good at sharing ideas.” – Student, Kenmont Primary School

Well done to everyone who was involved.
