Pupil Voice

At Holy Trinity CE School, pupils’ opinions and ideas matter. We believe that pupils should have the opportunity to share their ideas, we do this in a number of ways:

  • The Student Council
  • The Chaplains
  • Pupils have the opportunity to take on leadership roles such as captains of school teams; house captains; collective worship leaders; mentors; play leaders; as well as opportunities with each class.
  • Pupils have regular opportunities to discuss issues that may arise through structured activities such as circle time.
  • The curriculum offers opportunities for pupils to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding when using their pupil voice.
  • We also use questionnaires and pupil voice interviews linked to different areas e.g. Distinctive Christian Character, Maths.
  • Pupils having a great idea and sharing it with staff.
