About the Project
We are an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded research project spanning across four universities with a focus on young children’s participation rights in the lower primary setting. Our research aims to establish teaching practices that embed young children's participative rights in classrooms and schools. We are working with a range of individuals and organisations across the project such as teachers, higher education institutions, professional learning opportunities and of course children.
On our website you can find out more about all parts of the project, including information on our team, funders, and partners. We are also a centre for all things related to children’s participation in schools, with our resource hub designed to provide valuable information and for those interested in promoting and fostering children's participation rights in educational settings. In addition to the resources, the project also has blogs, vlogs, and podcasts about our research. Please also explore the information about events and news including upcoming training sessions, conferences and webinars in the News section of the website.
