Stockton-on-Tees • The pupil voice scheme is running across the borough with approximately 30 primary schools. • This programme involves children travelling to other schools to evaluate good practice. • Children look around the school and discuss different procedures. Take any good ideas for improvement back to their own schools to implement. • Example: In one school children were involved in deciding school lunch menus – this is now mirrored in many of the other schools. • In extended schools we have supported this practice and have adapted the programme to include children visiting and evaluating after school clubs, sharing ideas around what may be effective in their own school. Also we now use the scheme to consult with children around their views and ideas for childcare provision. Contact: Karen Orley: Karen.firstname.lastname@example.org
