VocalEyes feedback

STUDENTS (Year 5 & 6 – age 9 to 11)

“I find its a good way to share ideas and have the entire school think about them.”

Lucas

“I think it’s good because you can put your own opinion and nobody knows it’s you so there is no arguments.”

Molly

“I think it is a good way to find out if people like your idea without them being biased if you are their friend.”

Madie

“VocalEyes helps give everyone a voice and everyone deserves to be heard.”

Rebecca

SCHOOLS

“This is such an effective way of engaging pupils in the democratic process. Our School Council and Participation Groups love it and are already using the information to plan the school developments they want. They learn so much about how schools work, where the finance comes from and what others think of their ideas.

They really have to think critically about the issues which arise and are keen to further explore some of the topics they are unfamiliar with, distinguishing between fact and opinion when making choices.”

“Being able to decide on what is important in the school, and then having VocalEyes as a platform from which to collate the opinions of all students in the school, really feels like their voices are being heard in a purposeful way.”

“I am really looking forward to developing the way that we use VocalEyes, as I can already see how it is going to support us to listen to our students and families in so many ways, for example in terms of feeding ideas into strategic school development.”
