Pupil Voice/Pupil Roles
Pupil Voice is highly valued at Lockyer's Middle School and plays a crucial role in driving improvement across the school. It also provides students with opportunities to grow as leaders and decision makers of the future in order that they are empowered to enter the wider world as active global citizens.
There are many examples where students and staff work in partnership together to make decisions for improvement, or to support each other in order that the school community continues to flourish; Pupil Voice groups, Eco ambassadors, Peer mediators, sports leaders and many more.
Each year our Pupil Voice group consists of two representatives from each tutor group. Each pupil will have to prepare a short speech to deliver to their tutor group, explaining why they would be an excellent representative for the Pupil Voice group. After all speeches are delivered, a class vote is held to determine the two representatives from each class. Members of the Pupil Voice group are responsible for sharing and discussing key issues and ideas with the tutor group and they ensure that every member of the school community has a platform for their voice to be heard.
What did we get up to in 2020/21?
Due to COVID restrictions, we had to make some changes to the way we met as a group, however this did not stop us!
- New playground equipment was chosen based on feedback from all tutor groups across the school.
- Pupil Voice group provided valuable feedback in relation to their thoughts and ideas on the new school behaviour policy prior to it being finalised.
- Pupil Voice representatives wrote to Julia's House explaining our Fun for Fundraising day, requesting their support for this event.
- After gaining feedback from charity days earlier in the year, Pupil Voice group planned the activities and structure of the charity day at the end of the year.
