Welcome to the New Student Voice

On Monday, our whole school assembly focused on the Student Voice and was led by Mrs Perry, Head of Education.

 

In school, we have Student Voice representatives for each Key Stage.  The representatives are the ‘voice of the pupils and students’ and this is heard loud and clear!  SLT listen carefully to pupils’ and students’ opinions and ideas (OFSTED rate this as very important). Previous Student Voice ideas that turned into actions included new items for the menu, events such as Red Nose Day, a football match and a school trip abroad.

 

The Student Voice elections were held this week in the Key Stage meetings. Pupils and students had to prepare a 100-word manifesto to present to their peers.  Tutors and support staff were, of course, on hand to support pupils and students to think about, write and present their manifestos.

 

Silent Elections were held so pupils and students voted on the manifestoes without knowing which student had written them. Student Voice thought it was the fairest way to give some less-confident pupils and students a chance.

 

The results of the new Student Voice members were announced this morning, and the results are in this week’s Friday Flyer.

 

The residential special school provides highly effective services that consistently exceed the standards of good. The actions of the school contribute to significantly improved outcomes and positive experiences for children and young people. Ofsted – March 2018
