At St Catherine’s we believe that Pupil Voice is a huge part of what makes our school so great! Each day, we find opportunities to listen to the views of our children and involve them in decision making processes.
The impact of Pupil Voice is everywhere — be it in class, influencing the direction of project–based learning; as a member of School Council, advocating on behalf of children in their class; or during focus groups, allowing children to speak freely and honestly about their experiences of school and how to make them even better.
Pupil Voice plays a prominent part in school life and through it we allow our children to engage as active participants in their education, and in making a positive contribution to their school and local community.
Each half–term, pupils reflect on areas of our school, and we use this feedback to inform and improve what we do in the future.
The School Council is led by the Executive Committee — a group of children chosen by Miss Franks and Miss Weir. Each class from Year 2 to Year 6 elects a class rep to speak at Council meetings.
