Pupil Voice Focus
Safeguarding and wellbeing
Feeling safe in school
Adults to talk to
The pupils spoke confidently about what is expected of them – this was all around how they treat each other. The explained the 3 golden rules: We care, we share, we tell the truth. The talked about being respectful to everyone, being kind and caring and making good choices. One child said it was about living your lives the way you should.
The children felt safe in school – they could talk to their teachers or carers in school. ‘Teachers always listen’
There were many examples of where they felt valued and listened to, the Jam group – where they could share ideas including for collective worship. There were also roles within the school council, eco council, sports council etc. They felt you would always get your chance to be involved.
They children said that sometimes children fall out – they explained that it was ok to fall out and after you forgive.
When asked about behaviour – the children thought that the behaviour gets better as pupils get older. This could be as they are looked up to as role models. On a tour of the school behaviour was good with the younger children demonstrating good learning behaviours and moving around the school sensibly.
They all enjoy school ‘a lot!’ They like learning new things, getting to know new people and seeing their friends. They like having responsibilities. One pupil commented that the teachers are the best part.
The children feel that they are treated fairly – everyone getting a chance to do something/have opportunities.
The children explained the fire drill procedure and the emergency drill.
Suggestions on what the pupils would change were:
Behaviour in Reception (because they are quite noisy in the lunch hall)
Learning a variety of different languages
Would like to stay in school longer – not leaving at the end of Year 4.
