Do you use your school council to support and challenge your school. What happens when students and Ofsted disagree?
Here’ s Reddish Vale Technology College’s student voice case study, focusing on the ethos of the co-operative movement.
Haringey’s recently announced commission, Outstanding for All, neglects to engage with the people at the heart of the debate, the students.
Student voice at Beachamp College includes student governors, a student ambassador, a student-led inspection, students appointing staff, student-led research and clubs and societies led by students. This case study explains why they do all of this.
The new framework for school inspections released by Ofsted today removes all pressure on schools to involve their students in self-evaluation and improving their own community.
When schools are being blamed for not connecting young people with their communities a key tool that helped young people to see that their communities are what they make them, not something that happens to them, has been swept away.
A friend asked for help writing a student voice policy at her school. My answer was 5 quick suggestions on how to create one. They’re all here.
