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 mates 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. A recent example of this is a discussion with our safeguarding governor about the children knowing how to keep safe when using the computer both at school and at home and knowing who keeps us safe within the school community.
The group have also had the opportunity to share their views on the current Coronavirus pandemic.
