What is VotesforSchools?
VotesforSchools provides weekly resources for teachers to support discussion on a challenging topical issue and the opportunity for children to vote and comment on a key question. We then make the data and comments public, hugely raising the profile of Student Voice. We also get influential people and organisations to respond to the children so that they know they have been heard.
Sample questions have been: Does the modern world make it harder for diseases to spread? Do young people know the signs of an abusive relationship? Should all toilets be gender neutral? Is being a bystander still bullying? Can sharing stories prevent extremism? Would you like to be a politician?
We have worked in partnership with organisations such as UNICEF UK, The Counter Terrorism Police, the Place2B, Anti-bullying Alliance, Children's Bureau, Youth Justice Board, Metropolitan police, The Times and Sunday Times, Sky news, government departments etc.
