Pupil Voice Champions
The pupil voice champions (PVC) are a group of children in Year 1 and Year 2 who are elected to represent their peers. It is an opportunity for the children to become involved with projects across the school first hand and share their perspectives in how the school can be improved.
We believe that the children’s voice is important and as such they have been central in changes to our school. Last year the PVC’s helped select the new playground equipment in the KS1 playground and did this by considering the different designs. A further major project in 2018/19 that the PVC’s were involved in was “Healthy Living”. The PVCs ran their own fruit and water stall in the playground and presented an assembly on the topic of “Healthy Living” to their peers. This year the PVC’s will continue to be involved in the school’s ongoing “Healthy Living” campaign.
In addition to school policy Hampton Infants School allows the PVC’s to develop their enterprise skills. The PVC’s run their own stall at the Christmas and Summer fairs, which helps raise money for the school.
This year the PVC’s focus will be on the topical issue of climate change and the children have discussed the impact of their actions on the environment. The children have already designed their own flags for a competition run by Richmond Council. Please find a picture of the PVC climate change display below.
For further information on what the PVC’s get up too this term please read the Pupil Voice Champion newsletter, which is written with the children. The newsletter will be made available on the school website at the end of every term with details on the projects that the children have been involved with. Furthermore, during the Summer term the Reception children will have the chance to join the pupil voice champions.
