Children’s Views

The children’s views service gives you the chance to share your views about school.

You can do this by chatting to one of our children’s views workers at My Rights, My Say.

How you do that is completely up to you!

Here are just some of the ways that you can share your views:

  • meeting in person
  • chatting online on a video call (you can have your camera on or off)
  • text message or WhatsApp
  • emails
  • using our children’s views iPads
  • creative methods like drawing, painting, taking photos, making a collage, Lego
  • Talking Mats
  • anything else you can think of… the list is endless 🙂

Once you have shared your views about school, the children’s views worker will write it all down in a report. They will make sure you get to see the report and have the final say before it is shared with anyone.

You’re in control.

advocacy

My Rights, My Say has advocacy workers who can help you share your views with your school to get the support you need.

They can help you work out what you want to say and attend meetings with you.

If you don’t feel able to speak yourself, you can tell your advocacy worker what you think and they can speak up on your behalf.

Having an advocacy worker can be really helpful. You can find out more about why from SJ in our TikTok post here:
