Children from Heatherlands Voice spent the afternoon at the Houses of Parliament. They had a tour, and found out lots of history linked to our country’s political system, monarchy and democracy. They put their knowledge from last week’s political workshop into practice, and really impressed Miss Smith and Miss Brown with their questions. Sadly they couldn’t go into the House of Commons as it was being prepared for the afternoon’s session, but they got to see the entrances and visit the Central Lobby. Afterwards, they learnt about debating and put lots of effort into being respectful towards their peers and opposition. They used correct terminology, “my honourable friend” and got called to “Order!” by a Speaker. Finally, they saw the sights along the River Thames, including the London Eye and a statue commemorating the Suffragette movement. An obligatory visit to the gift shop, and then back on the minibus for the journey home! All children were an absolute credit to the school - demonstrating the Heatherlands Way perfectly. Well done to all of you, we hope you enjoyed it and learnt lots!
We believe that the Pupil Voice at Heatherlands is unique as it provides a platform for children to help shape thinking and share what makes the school special by providing representation from key areas of school life that children are independently responsible for. The children will sit on the Pupil Voice steering Board. Pupil Voice has potential to provide children with the opportunity for self-evaluation and reflection whist building self-esteem and confidence. The Heatherlands Pupil Voice draws upon the school values and works to develop wider school links and strengthen community cohesion.
The Heatherlands Pupil Voice is a force for good which motivates and engages our children by articulating and demonstrating the broad and balanced curriculum available to them and by offering a platform for all children to have their voice heard to help support and sustain continuous school improvements.
