Pupil Voice

At Bishopspark School, we believe in 'Pupil Voice'. Our pupils have the right to be consulted on matters which affect them and to express their views in our learning community. Our School Council is active in representing the views of every child, thinking about ways to make Bishopspark an even better place to learn.

In September, every class from Y1-Y3 elects one representative for the Council; there are two representatives from each Year 4 class. They take any issues or ideas the class may have to meetings which are then discussed by the councillors. The outcomes of the meetings are fed back to the classes through the class councillors. Each pupil therefore has a voice and a structured way of contributing positively to our school.

FS2 can have a voice through their teachers. It is felt that this is the most appropriate way of engaging our younger learners.
