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 RE lead, I had a group of 28 children formed from Early Years to Year 6 for the children to share their thoughts and feelings with each other as well as myself.


February 2023


Thoughts on RE):

‘I like learning about other religions.’

‘Like learning about God.’


‘Like learning about different celebrations’


‘It’s hard’



Things the children would like more of:

‘I want to learn more about Jesus’

‘Different types of prayer’

‘More about Christians and Christmas’


Crafts - such as making Christingles, advent wreaths

Visits – to a place of worship
