Pupil Voice are a small team who aim to make the school, their community and the world a better place! Each class democratically votes for their Class’ Pupil Voice representative. The team meets frequently to discuss projects and ideas; sometimes these are projects that impact just on our school, but can also be projects for our local community or the wider world. Projects in the past have included: food donations to Southend Foodbank, toy donations to local charity shops, projects with Havens Hospice, non-uniform days for local, national and global charities and questionnaires and surveys about our school. We want the children at Chalkwell Infants School to know that they can make a difference!
Meet Our Pupil Voice Team
Our Pupil Voice team were chosen by their classmates after making a speech about why they would be perfect for the role. We have a representative from each class across the school.
In September, Chalkwell Hall Infants supported a local charity named Gold Geese that looks after local families affected with childhood cancer. The Pupil Voice Team shared information with their classes and helped to plan our first ‘Go Gold Day’ where we wore something gold or yellow. The children created posters and raised money for the charity to support children and their families.
The Pupil Voice Team worked on a project with the Southend Food Bank named, ‘Let’s Make a Meal of It’. The Pupil Voice Team shared posters with their classes and together, the whole school collected lots of food donations for the Southend Foodbank. The Pupil Voice Team sorted the food into the crates ready to go to local families in our community.
The Pupil Voice Team worked with their classes to plan a non-school uniform day to raise money for Children in Need. Pupil Voice helped to write a fundraising letter to our school families to raise awareness of our fundraising event.
Christmas Tree Festival at St. Michael and All Angels Church
Our Reception children created a ‘Reach for the Stars’ themed Christmas Tree for the Christmas Tree Festival at St. Michael and All Angels Church. The Christmas tree was then auctioned off to raise money for charities being supported by the church.
Christmas Neptune Ward Appeal
We visited Argosy Toys and bought presents for the children who were in hospital over Christmas. We thought carefully about suitable gifts that they could play with whilst in bed. The gifts included top trumps card games and small dolls.
