Pupil Engagement

Louise Hogg Uncategorized

A vital part of the consultation on the proposed Collective Leadership Model is with our children and young people.

Article 12 of the United Nations Convention establishes the right of every child to freely express her or his views, in all matters affecting her or him, and the subsequent right for those views to be given due weight, according to the child’s age and maturity.

We want to know what matters to pupils in Argyll and Bute. And to help us understand this we have asked our schools if they could organise a session with their pupil council to discuss the proposals – and to alert parents as to when these will be taking place. If the school does not have a pupil council, they are requested to identify a group of pupils (P4-P7 for primary schools, S1-S6 for secondary schools) to run this session. We want a representation from every school to have their say.

We know that young people need information in a format designed to allow them to understand, so we have created age-relevant presentations – linked below – of the proposal for their consideration. These engagement materials have been developed by Head Teachers and the Education Transformation Team, who worked with two focus groups of young people to develop them.
