Pupil Voice Week

Pupil Voice Week is an initiative started by tootoot. Each year Pupil Voice Week focuses on a different theme, this year we're celebrating all of the incredible things that happen when our children and young people ‘Make their voice count’. More than one in ten children have no-one to talk to when they’re in school. We want children around the world to be confident to use their voice in any situation. Empowering children’s voices should be at the core of everything we do which is why we hold Pupil Voice Week every year at the end of September!

What is this year’s Pupil Voice Week theme?

This year’s theme is ‘Make your voice count’ and celebrates the fact that the voices of children and young people have the power to change the world.

We want to make sure children feel empowered to use their voices, and understand the value their voice has in society. This Pupil Voice Week has been created to give pupils the confidence to use their voice. Because when they do they improve their own happiness and wellbeing, and the happiness and wellbeing of those around them.

We’ve created a range of resources, assembly plans and classroom activities, made to engage and educate children and young people of all ages around the power and impact of using their voice. Sign-up here.

Madlug was founded in 2015 by Dave Linton. A man whose only experience in the luggage industry was bags of enthusiasm. This 40-something Youth Worker was heartbroken to learn that most children in care transport their worldly belongings in a bin bag. In that moment, Dave set out to do something about it. With just £480, he started Madlug and came up with our ‘Buy one Give one’ approach: with every bag you purchase, one will be given to a child in care.

The Reality

There are over 90,000 children in care in the UK and Ireland. One child enters the UK care system every 15 minutes. What’s more, over half are victims of neglect or abuse. Because children in care aren’t given a voice, the public don’t know about the problems they face every day. Which is why it’s so important that their story is heard.

Safeguarding First


At PGSF ltd we work with schools to ensure they can be the most effective they can be in keeping their pupils safe. Hearing the voices of our children is vital and providing a safe space, with safe professional relationships, listening to their views and their life lived experiences and supporting them as best we can is one of the most important roles for any member of the school workforce. It is imperative that at all times we understand as Educationalists how to gain trust and provide that safe space where clear expectations and support are offered unconditionally to all children. This then provides for all our pupils an environment where they can thrive, witness positive role models, develop respectful relationships and achieve their full potential and most importantly feeling safe and secure.

Each week, we create resources for teachers to lead a discussion on topical issues: creating a space to explore difficult themes. After debating and discussing, there’s a vote and chance to comment- we then share this voice with those in authority who need to know. To be empowered, it's crucial that our young people feel they are being heard, so we feedback to them on the response we get to the vote results. Working with Primary, Secondary and 16+ we are hugely raising the profile and impact of pupil voice.
