What is Student Voice for us?

Student Voice definition

As student voice has a different meaning for everybody the partners approved the need for a clear clarification and agreement on terms of student voice, which is in harmony with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child 1989 (Convention 1989) – which claims the right to express their views in matters effecting them and have their opinions given due weight commensurate with age and maturity.

The Erasmus Project Student Voice -The Bridge -is taking a collaborative, inclusive approach to developing enhanced student voice in our classrooms and across our schools. Our students and teachers feel empowered, develop a range of skills, and are supported in becoming self directed learners and active citizens. As part of this process our students play a meaningful role in collaborating with their teachers in shaping the curriculum and culture at class and whole-school level.
