Pupil Voice

‘Pupil Voice’ is the name given to our school council.  Representatives from each class are voted in by their peers to become a councillor. The Pupil Voice provides opportunities for the pupils to communicate the views and opinions of their class. Councillors will make decisions on many topics including the charity to be supported by the school, healthy breaks, playground equipment and much more.

Mrs Murphy is in charge of Pupil Voice.
