What is our role?
It is our job as Pupil Voice to make sure that every pupils' views are heard and taken into consideration when decisions are made about the school. We are working hard to ensure that every member of our school community is aware of the UNCRC articles and of children’s rights.
We are the link between our pupils, teachers, governors and the whole school community. We meet at least once a month to discuss issues which concern the pupils at St. Stephen's Junior School.
Before each Pupil Voice meeting we have a lunch time `drop-in` session in which children from the school can come and discuss their thoughts, feelings and opinions which we can then feedback to the rest of the team. When every Pupil Voice meeting is over, we have a talk with our class and present a summary of the information discussed during assembly; this is so they hear about what we have been discussing and so that they can give us their feedback.
We take our role very seriously and want to keep driving our school to be the best it can be!
Choosing Pupil Voice members
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.
