At Waverley Abbey, we feel that it is of the upmost importance to listen to our children as their views and opinions form an essential part of our continued growth and success. We are proud of the number of opportunities that children here have to voice their opinions about our school
Through participation in these groups and forums, our children gain an understanding of how citizens can influence decision making. For children not directly elected to a pupil voice role or chosen to be part of year/ subject reviews, they learn how a representative body makes decisions in their best interests. This teaches them the key principles of democracy.
Our pupil voice forums provide opportunities for pupils to enhance leadership skills and prepare them for secondary transition and adult life. They also provide the basis for active learning of important life skills.
At Waverley Abbey we have a wide range of pupil voice groups:
- School Council
- Worship Team
- Eco Group
- Global Schools
- Librarian helpers
- Peer mediators
- Sports leaders
- Year review pupil conferencing – termly
- Subject leader conferencing
