Pupil voice is a relatively new ‘concept’. I say ‘concept’ because I am sure it’s been discussed and implemented before, just under the guise of a different buzzword or term. From what I understand, ‘pupil voice’ is making an attempt to increase the influence that children make on the education that is experienced in the classroom. See here for full definition from Department of Education.
Whether this is an effective approach in schools is another discussion. What I am interested in is the extent that teachers have a place in which they work and learn. Until recently, and even now, some would argue that teachers don’t have a large voice in the key decisions made which influence their day to day life.
