Pupil Voice

We feel it is very important for the pupils at Oak View to have a voice. Oak View listens to pupils to find out what they want and need from the school and what they need to learn. For a lot of pupils, we have to be creative, to find ways our pupils can express themselves.

By setting these displays up, pupils can see their voice being important and will encourage them to use their voice more.
