At Mere Green, our children are at the heart of everything we do and we pride ourselves on our children having a voice. We value their opinions and encourage our children to play an active role in the decisions that affect their learning and wellbeing. We endeavour to nurture a culture where our children feel listened to, valued, respected and empowered. One of the ways that we give children the opportunity to share their thoughts is through Pupil Voice.
Our Pupil Voice Champions are a group of elected children from year 2 to 6 led by Mrs Bond and Miss Wright. Our Pupil Voice Champions meet regularly to gather and share their thoughts. After these meetings, ideas and plans are then fed back and discussed with each class by their class champion. Any views and opinions from each class are then shared in the following meeting and together we talk through them before decisions are made.
As a team, we work together to organise charity events, visit the local community and work on projects that make a difference to the children at Mere Green. When planning our projects we take a lot of pride and time to organise them to make sure that we raise as much money as we can and are suitable for all year groups to participate. We spread the word of our projects through posters, letters, Twitter and within our school assemblies.
