Pupil Participation

Participation is not a one-off, event-based undertaking or an end-in-itself but an overarching principle which builds a meaningful, effective and ongoing dialogue between children and staff.

For children and young people, knowing that they have the right to be heard in decisions which affect them boosts not only their sense of security but also their self-confidence. This opens the way to developing and applying the skills, language and concepts that empowers them to claim their rights and to advocate for the rights of children everywhere.
