Pupil Voice


We believe that listening to the pupil voice helps us to meet the needs of our pupils.
Children at St James’ make positive contributions to the daily running and success of the school.  Pupils play an active part in school life through:

  • The School Council
  • The Playground Squad
  • Peer Mediators
  • School Assistants
  • Buddies to Y3

All members of the above groups meet regularly and receive appropriate training.  They take their responsibilities seriously and make important decisions on a variety of aspects of school life.
