Elson Mini Governors – Pupil Voice

At Elson Infant School listening to pupil’s opinions about their school is very important to us. Mrs Parkinson holds fortnightly meetings with our ‘Elson mini Governors’, which are always discussed with their classes too, to allow feedback and responses from all the children. Mini Governors are changed twice a year.

At these meetings we talk about matters that are of concern and interest to them, and, is a time to celebrate things they love about school too! Some topics are brought to the Mini Governors from the staff and Senior Leadership team too to discuss and get their feedback as they are the experts of their school!

Children can bring any matter to the mini governors to be discussed and as a result of these conversations the school, they can see changes happening immediately from ideas that have come from them. Examples of this from last year are:

  • new playground toys and equipment
  • new school jumper and logo (designed by the children)
  • new learning power signs

and many more!

We will upload the minutes from every meeting for you to read and share with your children. Hopefully we have have lots of exciting things to discuss this year!
