The Meadows School visit to Parliament 28th June 2019

The Meadows School was lucky enough to be invited to take a group of students to The Houses of Parliament SEND Education day in Westminster, London. 

The purpose of the visit was to find out about democracy and how laws are made.

We had a tour of The House of Commons, where we were invited to sit on the ministers’ benches and in the Speaker’s chair! We also explored The House of Lords, Westminster Hall and Central Lobby, finding out about the history of the building and how Parliament works.

It was an early start and a late return, but we all had a fabulous day!
