Have your say

22nd June 2007 at 01:00
It was once believed that "children should be seen, not heard". Not so in Portsmouth, where the local authority has been working with the University of Sussex to create opportunities for pupils in all key stages to have a say in their learning, assessment and other aspects of their school life.

They will hold a one-day conference on July 3 to discuss their approach and help teachers who want to introduce student voice work into their schools.

Speakers at the event, "Student voice: creating a listening culture", include Professor Michael Fielding of the Institute of Education, University of London, and Professor Helen Gunter of the University of Manchester.

The cost is pound;45, which includes lunch and refreshments. For further information email e.dennison@sussex.ac.uk or call 01273 678 464.
