Since the launch of the Citizenship Curriculum in England, many schools have started to embrace pupil participation. As commitment grows, pupil participation is increasingly seen as an important tool in school improvement. It was in this context that the Carnegie Young People Initiative, as part of the Carnegie UK Trust, and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation came together in Spring 2005 to gain a better understanding of the impact of pupil participation on schools. The project involved secondary schools in England. The results of the project are set out in four publications, under the ‘Inspiring Schools’ banner: Impact and Outcomes, A Literature Review, Case Studies for Change and Resources for Action.
