What is Pupil Voice?
At Egerton, we think Pupil Voice is an important part of everyday school life. We aim to support our children to be able to speak about the things that are important to them, things that they would like to see improved and things that they think are great about our school.
The Pupil Voice group is made up of two Pupil Voice Leaders (from year 6), along with the eight House Captains (also year 6). These children are elected by Key Stage 2 in a ballot style poll. Each year group also elects two class representatives to be part of the Pupil Voice group.
Our Pupil Voice meeting system works on a termly basis. Once a term, we have a cycle of three meetings:
At Egerton, all children have the opportunity to discuss their ideas on how to make our school even better.
We have also recently added a Pupil Voice box where children can post ideas or suggestions at any point within the term. The Pupil Voice aims to report back to the school as often as possible on these suggestions and things that happen after their final meeting.
Below you will find minutes from some of our meetings. The Pupil Voice group have previously arranged a Whole School Talent Show, discussed events that they would like the Friends of Egerton to consider, discussed how they would like their allocated budget to be spent and most recently have considered how their would like the merit shop to be improved alongside discussing ways to develop school assemblies.
