Expectations and aspirations attached to the phrase 'pupil voice' range from affecting the day-to-day life in the classroom, to participation in democratic processes aimed at influencing the whole school community. The central idea is that pupils should be listened to and what they say should affect decision-making so they can participate in decisions related to their own learning.

We aim to involve pupils in a genuine way which will positively impact on whole school policies and our learning environments.
