Pupil Voice is the Voice of our children within school, they are a group of children combined of Class members from year 3 too 6. They organise charity events, visit the local community and work on projects to make our school an enjoyable place. A lot of the projects we have taken on over the years are: Mere Greens Got Talent, Selling Poppies for Remembrance Sunday, Children in Need, Race for Life (Cancer Research) and Red Nose Day. We work with a lot of groups to support our roles including: teachers, Pastoral Team, Sainsbury’s, the schools PTA and ATLP Student Leadership Team. When planning out projects we take a lot of time and pride in organising these projects to make sure they are affective to raising money and suitable for all year groups to take part in. We spread the word about our projects through Posters, letters, twitter and holding an whole school assembly.
To become a member of Pupil Voice, job application forms are sent out to any child from Year 3 too 6 who would like to apply for a position in Pupil Voice. These are handed to the class teacher, who then selects the top 3 out of there class and passes them on to Miss Williams for the next stage of selection. The top 3 children from each class are given a task to complete and a few days to complete it. The tasks are then looked through by Miss Brookes or Mr Boyd for a final decision on the representative for each class.
Within each school in the ATLP they have 3 Pupils who are part of the ATLP leadership team. These student leaders meet together once a month to gather and share ideas and planning events within our schools. After there meetings they feedback to Pupil Voice the ideas and plans so they can be implemented into our school.
As a team of student leaders they have created aims that they would want to achieve within the ATLP. These are:
To empower students to work in partnership with each other and staff across the ATLP towards shared goals.
To provide opportunities for students to develop leadership skills through variety of inspiring, challenging and valued projects which impact positively on learning, teaching and wellbeing for both students and staff across the partnership.
