Outwoods Primary School

Headteacher's Pupil Voice

Pupil voice in schools means a whole-school commitment to listening to the views, wishes and experiences of all children. We place value on what they tell staff in school.

Our children need to be provided with meaningful opportunities to share their experiences, views and hopes about their school. They need to know that it is safe and that it is important for them to express their views on what happens at school and they need to know that what they say is valued and will be listened to and considered.

As a school, we are committed to creating regular opportunities for children to share their views with each other and staff.

We make sure pupil voice opportunities are varied and include many different aspects of school life. For example: the curriculum, how children like to learn, the physical environment, break times, after-school clubs, extra-curricular activities and well-being.
