Student Voice

Student voice is not simply about giving students the opportunity to communicate ideas and opinions; it is about students having the power to influence change. Authentic student voice provides opportunities for students to collaborate and make decisions with adults around what and how they learn and how their learning is assessed. This is known to lead to improved educational outcomes.


At MWPS we encourage students to:

  • listen to and learn from peers and adults
  • ask questions to strengthen their understanding
  • share their ideas and opinions
  • actively seek feedback from teachers and peers to progress their learning and reflect on their learning experience
  • give feedback to peers and teachers
  • negotiate learning goals and assessment
  • respectfully challenge others’ views around learning and teaching
  • feel confident to contribute in meaningful ways for a shared sense of ownership
