Mr Bercow, who is also Speaker of the House of Commons, spoke to the children about democracy as part of the school’s unit on ‘British Values’.

Headteacher Gill Evans said: “It is very important that children understand how democracy works and we try to teach this in a way that is relevant to them.”

Mrs Evans added the house captains were chosen through a very democratic process where the whole school had a vote.

She said: “The children in Year Six who had put themselves forward had to do a one-minute presentation in front of the whole school followed by an interview with the headteacher and class teacher.“
