Pupil Voice

At Leybourne Chase we recognise a child’s right to be heard (Article 12) and value the children’s views on all aspects of school life where possible. We recognise our role as duty-bearers to ensure that all children feel that they are respected, listened to and valued as individuals and as a collective group.

We teach the children that it is their right to express their thoughts and opinions (Article 13) and that the best interests of the children are a top priority in everything that affects them (Article 3).

How we encourage pupil voice at our school:

Steering group/school council - this is led by the Rights Respecting Steering group, who meet regularly to discuss areas for school improvement or ideas for events. The outcomes from these meetings and regularly published on the Rights Respecting page on the school website.

Peer mediators - Year 5 are trained to be peer mediators to help to solve disagreements between peers on the playground.

Play leaders and sports leaders - Year 5 are trained as play and sports leaders. This involves them running games at lunchtimes and organising and supporting school sporting events.

Class assemblies - every term a class produces a class assembly based on a charity that they have chosen to support. The children present their work to the rest of the school and parents.

Pupil Questionnaires - we regularly ask our pupils to complete questionnaires to recognise areas of strength and development within the school.

Pupil Voice Post-box - following a steering group meeting, we have now placed a post-box in the school hall where children can post their ideas for events and areas for development. These ideas are then discussed at the beginning of each steering group meeting.

Introducing Our Steering Group

Img 8715Img 8707Img 8713Img 8720Img 9347Img 8709Img 8718

Our Steering Group members meet once a fortnight to discuss areas for school development and improvement. They listen to their classes and feed-back any comments that have been raised. As a group they have already put in place a number of initiatives, including: playground and field rotas, play-equipment rules, a post-box for ideas and ideas for displays. 

Pupil voice events

  • On 30th April 2019 a small group of Year 5 and 6 children presented about the importance of Pupil Voice to NHS England. Read all about it in the following document: NHS Pupil Voice Presentation
