School Council at Dunclug Primary School

At Dunclug Primary School we believe that our children are the most important people. We endeavour to give all children opportunities to share their thoughts and opinions. The aim of our school council is to make Dunclug Primary an even better place. Our school council have been chosen by the pupils to represent the children in the school. Every few weeks the school council meets with Mrs Spence and they can share the children’s ideas and suggestions.

Pupil Voice Questionnaire

At Dunclug Primary School we believe it is so important to listen to our pupils and take their opinions on board. This year our whole school Literacy focus is aimed at developing pupils' reading comprehension skills. As part of our development we wanted to get the pupils' thoughts on reading. Our school council took part in a pupil voice questionnaire to help us find out how our children feel about reading and how we could help to improve their reading. Through a discussion and questionnaire the school council came up with really interesting and insightful comments which will be really useful for teachers when planning and teaching reading.
