Wallyford Primary School Pupil Voice Session 1

16 P6/7 pupils took part in their first Pupil Voice session today, on Theme 1: What makes a good school?

They firstly worked together to remind themselves of what they already know about doing good group work. They agreed that the important words to remember were:

  • Respect
  • Kindness
  • Inclusion
  • Listening
  • Focusing on the person speaking
  • Hard work

They collaborated to answer the three key questions that have also been asked of parents:

  • What is school for?
  • What does a good school look like?
  • What do you like about your current school?

Their answers will be collated along with those from the pupil voice groups across all of our associated schools, then shared via the website when all of the groups have had their first meeting.

The young people also had the chance to ask questions about the new school. These showed how important outdoor space, active learning and the arts are for this group. However, they weren’t afraid to get philosophical, with one pupil asking, ‘Why do schools exist?’ It was fascinating to hear the rest of the group try to answer!
