Welcome 

Welcome to the Pupil Voice section of our school website. This section of the website belongs to the pupils of Wheatley Hill Primary School and it is a place where they can make their voice heard and show how they take a lead role in the management of our school. The children are involved in school leadership and take part in making crucial school decisions. Children are involved in budget spending choices, teacher recruitment and their opinions are saught when any significant changes are to be made in school. This section of the website shows some of the pupils achievements and targets for the SMART council.
