British Values theme

This Mirror Assemblies theme about Democracy tackles aspects of democracy and aims to equip children with an understanding of different types of democracy, positive and negative, as well as how children can engage with it at a school and local level.

The theme seeks to develop children’s understanding of key people who have influenced democracy. These include

  • Aung San Sui Kyi,
  • Dalai Lama,
  • Benazir Bhutto,
  • Mary Wollstonecraft,
  • Lech Walensa,
  • Mahatma Ghandi etc.

It also has a series of assemblies entitled “What is democracy?”

This Democracy theme builds on the work schools do on developing children’s understanding of British Values. It details specific Learning Outcomes for Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2. 


A key feature of Mirror Assemblies are the presentations with music that encourage pupils to think about aspects or moods or emotions that are covered in the following assembly. These work like a “warm up” in PE in encouraging pupils to “tune in” to the moods and emotions coming up as they wait in the hall for others to arrive.  These have been much appreciated by purchasing and trial schools and even commented on by Ofsted!
