Pupil Voice at Portpatrick


To help develop the skills for life, learning and work and as part of Developing our Young Workforce, our boys and girls applied to join our Pupil Council, our Eco Council and to become Digital Leaders.  The children had to detail their skills and attributes that would match the role they were applying for.  They also offered ideas and suggestions as to ways we could take our Pupil Voice forward for the benefit of all.

The standard of entries was high and much deliberation was needed to elect this year’s representatives. Have a look at our Responsible Citizens who have been appointed as pupil representatives for 2021- 2022.

In addition to this, many of our children applied to take on school monitor roles to help contribute to the effective running of our school:

  • Library Monitors – Alba and Tilly
  • Dinner Hall – Izzy
  • Playground Buddies – Ruby, Katie & Carter
  • Outdoor Area – Rebecca & Cameron
  • Cloakroom Area – Atticus

As well has having whole school responsibilities, all of our pupils have been keen to take on roles in each of their classrooms.  Everyone will be given the opportunity to  contribute and participate.

It is important that our children are given opportunities to use their ‘voice’ as part of our commitment to being a Rights Respecting School.   Having achieved bronze, we are now working on achieving our silver status.  The enthusiasm of our pupils is great to see.  We are looking forward to a successful year with our Effective Contributors!
