Student voice is students actively participating in decision-making at school on things which shape their educational experiences.
Student voice is more than just students 'having a say' and 'being heard'. To be successful, schools must value the perspectives and opinions of students and act on them in a way that genuinely shapes learning and decision-making at the school.
Including student voice in decision making at schools can:
allow students and teacher to design solutions together
increase engagement in learning
build connections and belonging
create a positive environment and culture
develop personal and social capabilities.
