Pupil Voice - Gabalfa Primary School Ladder

Article 12 - You have the right to your opinion and have adults listen and take it seriously.

We know how important it is for pupils to have a say in the important decisions affecting the school.  Our 'Ladder' contains nine steps that meet every Tuesday to plan actions that will improve our fantastic school even more.


Have you got an idea of how to improve our fantastic school?  Make sure you bring your ideas to the Ladder Meetings.
