Pupil Voice

At Sutton in Craven Community Primary School  we have  high expectations and aspirations for all  our pupils.  We are aim for the highest levels of achievement and personal development for all pupils during their time  here –  we  believe that pupil leadership is fundamental to this experience.

We have several pupil voice groups consisting of a mix of pupil from Y3-Y6 and  believe that involvement in pupil leadership prepares our pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life in modern Britain.

During each academic year pupil voice groups hold regular meetings to plan and carry out their annual work – they sometimes contribute to assemblies, meet with Governors and write for the weekly newsletter.  Every group is supported in their work by a designated member of school staff.

Membership of a group requires commitment – pupils have the opportunities to work alongside children from different age groups. Respect, courtesy and good manners towards each other and adults is expected.

There are the pupil voice groups at our school:
