Last year over 270,000 pupils from around the world celebrated the week, and this year will be the biggest yet, with more partners and free resources than ever before.
What is Pupil Voice Week?
Pupil Voice Week is an initiative started by tootoot, we are a pupil voice and safeguarding app used by over 600 schools across the UK. The week is now in its fourth year, and with the help of our partners; Internet Matters, eAware, Safeguarding Essentials, TrainingSchoolz, Kidscape, Ditch The Label and Madlug tootoot have created a range of lesson activities, lesson plans, and assemblies and staff training for your school to enjoy.
We aim to educate pupils about the benefits of using their voice, encouraging a long-term change of culture beyond the dates of the week. We hope that by providing schools with the knowledge and resources required to help you promote the importance of the pupil voice, more of your children and young people will speak up about the issues that are concerning them, to create a positive change in the future.
Empowering children to speak out
With the theme ‘Our Voice’ Pupil Voice Week this year focuses on encouraging pupils to unite their voices and speak out about issues that are affecting their community.
We’d like every child to believe that their voice contributes towards a happier and safer world, and that by speaking up they are making a real difference. Which is why the Pupil Voice Week provides the tools to help teach your pupils about what a positive voice is, how they can use their voices and ways they can work together to create a happier world.
Free anti-bullying support resources
Your free resource pack also covers topics such as anti-bullying and cyberbullying to highlight to children and young people the impact their voices can have when they are used negatively and conversely the good, they can do in the world when used positively.
