Working together: Giving children and young people a say (The Participation Guidance)

The purpose of this consultation is to gather views on the draft document, Working together: Giving children and young people a say. This consultation document sets out our proposals for helping Local Education Authorities (LEAs), Governing Bodies and schools to consider the views of children and young people and involve them when making decisions that affect them, as provided in Section 176 of the Education Act 2002. Our aim is to help to open up opportunities for children and young people to become more active participants in their education, including involvement in planning and the evaluation of their own learning.
