Student Voice at Carleton Community High School
At Carleton Community High School we are committed to ensuring our students feel secure and valued during their time here. We encourage our students to actively take responsibility for their own learning and education.
In wider support of their academic education, to enable our students to share their opinions and have a voice in their school and their education we have developed our ‘Student Voice.’
There are many roles within our Student Voice, some of which are detailed below.
Head Boy, Head Girl and Senior Ambassadors
Our Senior Ambassador Team, led by our Head Boy and Head Girl, take pride in chairing their own meetings and organising many fund-raising events for school and charity. The Senior Ambassadors are also encouraged to take on duties around school at lunch time and run activities for students in younger year groups.
Students are responsible for showing visitors around the school and can be from years 7 to 11.
At Carleton Community High School we value the opinions of our students and believe they should have a voice in the decisions made when employing new members of staff. Consequently we have a student interview panel, who interview candidates, again made up from students in years 7 to 11.
We have our own TV crew! They report on things that are happening in school. The videos are edited and shown on the TV screens around school.
Our sports forum work closely with the PE department to provide feedback about PE lessons, PE kit and the curriculum. They also help with organisation of tournaments, visit primary schools and school Sports Day.
Our buddy system is designed to ensure that all students feel safe and enjoy the transition from primary to secondary school. Buddies are attached to each Year 7 form group to assist in the transition process.
Subject Ambassadors work within departments to help organise subject based events, present ideas and give feedback on the subject area and the curriculum.
Each form group elects a school council representative. The school council meet to discuss whole school matters such as the rewards system, behaviour policy, in school catering service and much more.
Student Voice ensures all students from Years 7 to 11 have the chance to make a difference to their school and their education, while developing invaluable life skills such as confidence, communication skills and the ability to use self-initiative.
