Pupil Voice

The children in our school are the most important visitors. As such, they have lots of opportunities to share their thoughts on school issues – both formally and informally and their voice helps steer the school development plan.


At St Helen's, we believe that all our pupils should have the opportunity to share their pupil voice. We aim to do this in a number of ways:


  • The school council plays a big part in pupils sharing their ideas, views, or concerns about school. See our schools council page for more details.
  • Pupils engage in circle time sessions in the "Circle Time" room in order to share their thoughts and opinions on a variety of subject areas.
  • In every class we have "Message Boxes" for pupils to communicate with adults if they have something they wish to discuss.
  • Each year pupils from every year group answer questions in our whole school pupil questionnaire, they also have the opportunity to comment on things that they like about our school and improvements they would like to see.
