Pupil Conferencing

Pupil Conferencing

 

At Elmbridge, pupil voice is very important to us; we feel the children should have a say in the development of the school. So 3 times a year, we hold a ‘Pupil Conferencing’ session involving every child from Year 1-6. The children are split into groups which focus on different areas of the school. The groups are made up of children from different classes. They discuss whether previous actions have been met across an aspect of school and what they would like to develop. The children always have strong opinions and all of their views are taken into account; where possible changes are made according to their wishes.

Here is the Pupil Conferencing Feedback from July 2019.
