Find Your Voice

Who We Are

We are the Finding Your Voice group. We are here to help and support each other find our voice when we are in the face of adversity. By teaching each other strategies on how we can cope with stressful situations, we want to ensure all pupils at Churchfields Junior School are happy and have a positive outlook on life. Our hope is that everyone will be confident and proactive in overcoming problems and face their challenges head on.

What We Do

Every week we meet with Mr Webster and Ms Sidhu to explore new strategies, based on scientific research, that will help us be confident, be positive and be considerate of others. We share and discuss strategies as a class, before sharing them with the school through campaigns and assemblies. We want school to be a place that is free of anxiety and ensure all children have multiple strategies they can employ to deal with any worries they face as the grow up in life. We hope that by working on finding our own voices, we will have greater confidence, to care and support everyone in the Churchfields’ family.

I wanted to go to ‘finding your voice’ because I wanted my confidence to grow and develop. Also to see a brighter future; I will achieve this by making sure I learn how to deal with stressful issues we come across daily outside of school. In addition I sent myself here to socialise with different people who have different back grounds. Finding your voice could teach me skills to calm myself wile solving my problems.
