We want to hear from our children and we want our children to feel they are heard.
Their voice is so important and we know they have fantastic things to say. All children have opportunities to contribute in class through oracy opportunities promoted by learning approaches such as maths mastery and talk for writing.
Beyond this, many children are heard through, for example, being members of school council: helping make decisions about key elements of school life. Or helping the smooth running of lunchtimes and thinking of improvements to the dining experience as part of the food council. They could be role models as prefects or sorting out disputes using restorative approaches as trained peer mediators.
In the following pages, you can find out more about how we promote pupil voice to ensure they engage as valued partners in the life of Grasmere.
