Children’s Voice


At Shakespeare Infant School we highly value our children’s thoughts and ideas regarding improving our lovely school and its grounds. Our caring Children’s Voice group provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have all of their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them.


The children in the group are democratically voted for by their class peers at the start of the academic year and are in the Children’s Voice group for the year.


The group meet regularly throughout the year with Headteacher, Mrs Wilson and talk about ways to improve our school. 

Mrs Wilson, and sometimes the governors, talk to Children’s Voice about aspects of the school in order to get a child’s perspective and to support school improvement.


So far this term the group have...


1) decided and voted for the  name of the Learning Lab


2) carried out a lunchtime playground review to see what children enjoy and dislike about their time in the hall at lunchtime


3) promoted the selling of poppies to remember those who have lost their lives in conflicts around the world.
