We are a listening school

Pupil Voice

A whole-school approach means listening to the voices of everyone in the school community, including children.

Pupil voice in schools means a whole-school commitment to listening to the views, wishes and experiences of all children. We wish to value our children's experiences by giving them opportunities to share their views about school and the outside world.

We want all pupils need to know that it is safe and that it is important for them to express their views on what happens at school. 

There are many ways in which we are able to do this at Furze:

  1. Each classroom has a suggestion/ worry box so that children can write about their feelings/ thoughts
  2. We have a school council to discuss whole school matters such as school lunches or the playground activities offered
  3. We have an Eco-warrior Group that meet and action issues around the school environment
  4. Assemblies- where children have opportunities to discuss current events or present ideas 
  5.  Regular meetings with subject leaders to discuss their learning with their books
