Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Children & Young People Mental Health Support

Teachers and School Staff

PUPIL VOICE TOOLKIT

The Pupil Voice Toolkit was developed by PSHE as a free resource to support schools and colleges to work with our children and young people to explore ways of promoting their mental and emotional wellbeing. The process involves children in identifying self-help opportunities and ways in which school and community provision could further enhance their mental and emotional wellbeing. It will help school leaders make use of school level data to identify the mental wellbeing needs of children and to determine how best to address these. The resources in the toolkit are based on mental and emotional wellbeing examples, however, the tools could be adapted to apply to other topic areas also.
