Student Voice is a very important part of school life because it provides opportunities for all students to take on roles of responsibilities and to get involved in real decision making. Student voice also provides opportunities for students to develop leadership skills, becoming more confident participants in the wider world. It is also about staff and pupils working together, developing positive working relationships to improve the school as a learning community.
Students have to strategically plan, support and drive student voice forward to ensure that it is relevant to young people and achieves success through hard work and great effort.
Our Student Action Teams have now trained future school leaders and been invited into many schools across London to train other students in the art of leadership and advocacy and have been nominated for a Team London Award for volunteering.
