Pupil Voice

Here at Abbeymead Primary School, we believe that our children are the most important people and we endeavour to give all children lots of opportunities to share their ideas and opinions and play an active role in the decisions that affect their learning and well-being.

We have lots of ways that the children can do this formally, such as through the Learning Forum, Inclusion Leaders, Play Leaders and pupil conferencing. However we also work hard to create an ethos that allows the children to regularly share their opinions in an informal way through conversations in class, assemblies and 1:1 conversations with all school staff.

Inclusion Leaders

Our 'Inclusion Leaders' are our pupil voice in terms of how our children work with the members of our support staff in school. They help us to make sure that the teaching and learning in school is accessible to all children, and tell us what works for them and what doesn't with regards to resources and strategies used in the classroom.


Play Leaders

Our school is extremely lucky to have some brilliant play leaders. At lunch time their role is to play with a group of pupils and to organise playground games.

Play Leaders are responsible for the following areas:

  • Introducing new games,
  • Supporting children to play safely
  • Reinforcing Abbeymead's core values,
  • Taking out and putting away play equipment,
  • Leading playtime activites
