Coordinated by tootoot, pupil voice week is designed to encourage primary and secondary schools to raise awareness of key issues, such as bullying, cyberbullying, racism, mental health and e-safety issues that children and young people may face on a daily basis.
Alongside teachers, social workers, councils, companies and policymakers we’d like to encourage you as parents to join in and explore ways that you can empower your child to feel confident to talk about their concerns.
Pupil Voice week will take place from 25th – 29th September 2017 and this year the theme is ‘It’s Your Voice’ with a focus on children’s mental health. For further information and to sign-up go to pupilvoiceweek.co.uk.

Why is it important?
Within the past year, 1.5 million children and young people have been bullied.
As much as 36% of children and young people who have been bullied said it made them feel depressed and at least half of suicides amongst young people are related to bullying,
This is why we want to celebrate the pupil’s voice, the fact that’s it’s good to be different, and that a pupil’s voice is the most important part of them.
