Pupil Voice


Hillside Primary School – Pupil Voice 2019-20

There are many ways in which all pupils are given a chance to share their ideas, opinions and concerns on a regular basis during a typical school day. These include:

  • Responding to feedback
  • Group/paired activities
  • Peer/self marking
  • Circle time
  • Curriculum reviews
  • Enterprise aspirations
  • Personal pupil speak target setting
  • Use of Kagan strategies
  • Classroom roles and responsibilities


More specifically children can volunteer for or take part in, a number of specific roles/activities in school such as:

  • Pupil interviews
  • Class assemblies
  • Festive/charity/community events
  • Sporting competitions
  • PASS survey
  • Librarian duties
  • Office lunchtime duties
  • Lunchtime club monitors
  • Classroom roles and responsibilities
  • Tuck shop
  • Chair monitors


A number of roles/responsibilities are undertaken for the full year and pupils are elected by their class peers to become school councillors. These roles last for the year and are timetabled to ensure that the elected pupils regularly meet in order to represent their classes. Each half term their meetings and activities will be timetabled to allow adults involved to address and action issues, ideas and concerns. In recent years this has resulted in the building of a play tower in the playground; improvements made to our school lunch menus; new activities taking place during golden time and school being awarded our Green Flag status for the third consecutive time. There may be other times such as assemblies when groups present their work to the rest of school. These times can be organised as and when needed.
