Pupil Voice is an important part of our school. It is used to help the school make decisions that have an impact on us, the children.
How Pupil Voice members are chosen
Following the British value of democracy, instead of the teachers choosing the members of Pupil Voice, there is an election. We set up the hall as a polling station where there is a ballot box and a slip. On this, you write the name of the person you want to represent you. Two people (a boy and a girl) are selected by children in their class.
WOW ! The year-round walk to school challenge!
Pupil Voice are helping to run the walk to school challenge! They have been trained so they can log on to the website and log how children have travelled to school. Pupil Voice were excited to find out how to monitor the progress and can't wait to start the children to earn their monthly badges!
Our First Meeting!
Pupil Voice had an excellent first meeting where they discussed lots of important information. They discussed what lunch time clubs they would like teachers to run and thought about what national and local charity we would like to support this year. They have been set the task to go and discuss this with their class, collect lots of ideas ready for our next meeting!
Pupil Voice Meetings
In our meetings we have lots of important business to discuss. We share our ideas clearly and confidently and make sure that everybody's ideas are heard. It is important for us to report back to our classes and make sure that they are able to share their opinions before we make any final decisions. An important, but very enjoyable job!
What is our role?
We meet up at least twice a term. As well as sharing our class’s thoughts and ideas, we focus on tasks that Miss Wilson sets us. When every Pupil Voice meeting is over, we have a talk with our class; this is so they hear about what we have been discussing and so that they can give us their feedback.
This term (T1), Pupil Voice have been asking their classes which clubs we should have this year.
Our Visit to Bristol Cats and Dogs Home
Pupil Voice were extremely lucky to visit the Cats and Dogs Home to see what this amazing charity does on a daily basis. We were amazed at the large range of animals that they care for from cats and dogs to rabbits and snakes! It is obvious how important this charity is and we can't wait to raise more money now in Term 6 with our up and coming event, 'Wooftie Day!' Let the planning commence!
Bristol Dogs and Cats Home
Pupil Voice have been hard at work. They led a whole school assembly asking the rest of the school to donate any cat or dog food so that we can make lots of cats and dogs happy this Christmas. The response was amazing! We can't wait to take all of the food to the Dogs and Cats home, they will be so impressed with all of our efforts! Thank you!
