The Origin and Concept of Pupil Voice
Pages 11

This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of the origin, concept, principles, benefits and challenges, process and levels of pupil voice and participation, without being too technical. Such an overview is particularly valuable to enable any professional from education, health and social care, working directly with children and young people in a range of educational settings, to transfer and apply the basic theory of pupil voice to the practical situation, at whole school, and classroom level. Further activities at the end of the chapter, which are solution focused, are offered to allow for reflection and analysis.
