At Selwyn, we believe in consulting pupils on matters that affect them and involving them in school decision-making; this is known as Pupil Voice. Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) states:
Parties shall assure to the child who is capable of forming his or her own views the right to express those views freely in all matters affecting the child, the views of the child being given due weight in accordance with the age and maturity of the child.
We believe that giving pupils a voice:
• Encourages pupils to become active participants in a democratic society
• Contributes to achievement and attainment
There are a number of ways we ascertain the views of our pupils. These include questionnaires, Year 6 exit polls and through a range of pupil groups. At Selwyn we have a number of pupil groups responsible for representing the opinions and views of children on a variety of things that affect our school community.
