At St. Stephen’s CE Primary School we feel that all our pupils should have a voice in the growth and development of our school.
At present we are unable to hold our usual Pupil Voice meetings due to Covid restrictions but we are still ensuring that children can share their thoughts within their class bubble and raise any issues/ideas with the Headteacher. We are sadly unable to have our Reception and Y6 buddies this year due to bubbles being unable to mix under normal circumstances we undertake the following activities:
Children are routinely involved in small group pupil voice sessions sharing their thoughts and opinions on a range of school aspects such as bullying, Worship and Curriculum. Our school governors also attend termly pupil voice meetings and enjoy sharing in our pupil’s ideas and suggestions.
In Spring Term all pupils take part in a questionnaire which considers all aspects of school life. The results from the questionnaires are used by the management team to inform future planning. Children are also encouraged to use our school suggestion box if they have any ideas or suggestions they would like to share.

We are really proud of achieving the Investors in Children Award which recognises how our children are valued and involved in decision making within school.
Y6 Buddies support younger children during break time sessions and feedback any issues to relevant members of staff.
Pupils are keen to be involved in charity efforts and raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Research, Race for Life, Children in Need, Save the Children and provide presents for Operation Christmas Child.
Pupils are regularly involved in working group meetings such as School Travel Planning, evaluating Collective Worship, reviewing Race Equality Schemes and Action Planning and many others.
