Why is Student Voice Important?
Young people spend a lot of time at school. After the family, school has the most significant influence on child development, so making students’ time at school enjoyable and worthwhile supports their mental health and wellbeing. Part of this process involves supporting students to be active contributors to their own learning.
The sense of belonging, positive relationships and improved self-esteem achieved when children are active contributors in their school community, are significant protective factors that support their mental health and wellbeing now and in the future.
