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.
On our return to school in September 2020, the children responded so well to school modifications - we were so incredibly proud of them.
In Year 1, children have been reading '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!'
Several Year 2 children have shared with each other 'I am soooo happy to be at school, I have really missed learning.'
During Reception and Nursery transition visits to school, children shared 'I want to stay and play!'
