Cameo: pupils influence school life

At Clwyd Community Primary School, Swansea, pupils took full advantage of opportunities to influence what and how they learn, for example through their work in a considerable number of pupil voice groups. These groups included a Safety Squad, and a Rights Respecting group that helps pupils to recognise and promote the children’s rights in accordance with the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). Over time, nearly all pupils developed a secure understanding of their rights, for example by creating class charters that set out agreed expectations for pupils.
