It’s a Labour win at Roding Valley High School.
The students thoroughly enjoyed the process which included election discussions and videos throughout assemblies and registrations in the lead up to the day. The voting day was just one example of how we support British values at Roding Valley High School. Students were grateful to be given the opportunity to exercise their democratic right to vote.
