‘The whole Catholic school is part of the Church’s ministry to evangelise and catechise. Through the centuries the Church has educated young people and adults as part of its life.’
Red Book, 2010:23
At the Convent of Jesus and Mary Catholic Infant school we have succeeded in integrating Pupil Voice in all areas of school life. Pupil Voice is the way all pupils make their ideas, needs and opinions known and participate in decisions that affect their lives.
When pupils are heard they feel valued. This is a steppingstone towards embedding our Learning Behaviours and encouraging confidence, curiosity, creativity, resilience, and resourcefulness, as well as supporting pupils to take responsibility, challenge themselves, value teamwork and ultimately aim for grace.
As pupils engage with their learning in class, they reflect on their likes and dislikes, where they are in their learning and what their next steps are. Pupils take responsibility for their behaviour, and through our School Rules, they understand the importance of making good sensible choices in their attitudes, work and play, which they know will have an impact in their lives and empowers them to make changes.
