Pupil Voice


At Birkby Junior School we work hard to make sure every child can express their views and contribute to school life. The views of children are important and help us to grow and develop our school.

Children contribute to school life by taking part in assembly surveys, class discussion and conversations with peers and staff. They help us to develop our curriculum, resources, playtime and lunchtime activities and even our school lunches! All children also complete a survey twice a year which focuses on their feelings about school and their learning at Birkby Junior School.

School Council

We also have a School Council. Our School Council is group of children who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

At the beginning of the school year, every class elects one representative to be a member of the School Council. Our 20 School Councillors wear a special badge to on school uniform every day and meet regularly during the school year.

Our School Council discuss children’s views and help Mrs Davis, our Head teacher, make important decisions about school. Each half-term they also take on a special project such as organising fund raising days or surveying children about playtime activities.

In the past some of their activities have included: completing school meal pupil questionnaires, visiting the town hall for our ‘Meet the Mayor’ trip and the organising of Comic Relief fund raising activities.
