New Waltham Academy Pupil Voice



We value our pupil’s voice at New Waltham Academy and have now held our first Pupil Voice afternoon. As PE leaders, we had a group of children formed from Years EYFS – 6 for the children to share their thoughts and feelings with each other as well as us.

In our pupil voice this term, we focused on what the children enjoy about their PE lessons. Teachers also held discussions with the children about what they had voiced previously (see February 2023) and actions subject leaders have made, to act upon some of these things. Children understand that leaders cannot change everything, but that their voice and opinions are taken into consideration.

Thoughts on PE:

‘PE is Fun, Fantastic and Amazing!’

‘PE is fun and makes me feel happy.’

‘I like PE because you can get fresh air and play games.’

‘I enjoy doing PE because there is a wide variety of things to do.’

‘It makes me fit and healthy.’

‘It allows us to exercise!’

‘PE is awesome fun!’


Things the children would like more of:
