Tootoot CEO and founder Michael Brennan has written to invite you to Pupil Voice Week 2019, running from the 23rd - 27th September!
Last year over 270,000 pupils from around the world celebrated the week, and this year will be the biggest yet, with more partners and free resources than ever before.
Pupil Voice Week is an initiative started by tootoot, we are a pupil voice and safeguarding app used by over 600 schools across the UK. The week is now in its fourth year, and with the help of our partners Internet Matters, eAware, Safeguarding Essentials, TrainingSchoolz, Kidscape, Ditch The Label and Madlug we have created a range of lesson activities, lesson plans and assemblies and staff training for your school to enjoy.
Our aim is to educate pupils about the benefits of using their voice, encouraging a long-term change of culture beyond the dates of the week. We hope that by providing schools with the knowledge and resources required to help you promote the importance of the pupil voice, more of your children and young people will speak-up about the issues that are concerning them, with a view to creating a positive change in the future.
With the theme ‘Our Voice’ Pupil Voice Week this year focuses on encouraging pupils to unite their voices and speak out about issues that are affecting their community.
We want every child to believe that their voice contributes towards a happier and safer world, and that by speaking up they are making a real difference. Which is why the Pupil Voice Week provides the tools to help teach your pupils about what a positive voice is, how they can use their voices and ways they can work together to create a happier world.
Your free resource pack also covers topics such as anti-bullying and cyberbullying to highlight to children and young people the impact their voices can have when they don’t use them positively.
