Children with dyslexia and dyspraxia formed their own political parties and put forward manifestos for a mock general election.
Less than two months before the country goes to the polls, election fever was already in full swing at Limespring School for children with learning difficulties in High Road, East Finchley, last Thursday.
Finchley and Golders Green MP Mike Freer was invited to cast the first vote before he answered questions about his role in parliament.
The pupils have formed two political parties and campaigned with leaflets and posters on issues including increasing the number of recycling bins in parks.
Deputy headteacher Jayne Tarbuck said: “They’ve been working really hard on their campaigns.
