The Pupil Voice

At Newbattle High School, pupils have an important part to play in making decisions about the life and work of the school. One of the ways in which pupils can have their say and make sure that their views and ideas are listened to is through the Pupil Voice.

What is a Pupil Voice?

The Pupil Voice is Newbattle High School’s Pupil Council. This involves one representative from each homeroom class. From this, three representatives from each year group were elected to represent each House. This formed the Executive Pupil Voice.

The Pupil Voice:

  • Gives pupils a chance to share their ideas with peers and staff.
  • Represents each class/house in the school.
  • Meets regularly to talk about important school issues and make decisions that affect them and their school.
  • Helps pupils to build confidence.
  • Gives pupils, responsibilities and encourages leadership.
  • Gets exciting issues moving
