Voice of the Change Makers
What is our role?
It is our job as Voice of the Change Makers 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 Voice of the Change Makers 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 Voice of the Change Makers 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 Voice of the Change Maker members
Following the British value of democracy, instead of the teachers choosing the members of Voice of the Change Makers, 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.
