Pupil Voice is so important to us at Millfield. It helps us in a range of ways, including: tailoring our curriculum; it ensures that we are focusing on children's interests; it helps us to ensure our teaching and the children's learning is delivered effectively; it also aids children's understanding of our School Values, as well as British Values.
Pupil Voice is collected at varying points over the school year and for a range of reasons. These can include: an annual school survey, before and after topics, before and after school events, to seek focused information e.g. thoughts on online safety, as well as sharing information about lessons. Below is a taster of Pupil Voice responses.
In Year 1, children read 'Now Wash Your Hands' by Matt Carr. Their favourite phase from the book is 'Don't give those germs a chance!'. When it's time to wash their hands, many children respond with 'Yes, because we don't want to give those germs a chance!'
During Reception and Nursery transition visits to school, children shared 'I want to stay and play!'
