Pupil Voice

Pupil Voice

Pupils’ thoughts and opinions are vital to our school being effective. We have active Student Council with democratic decisions made by council representatives after consultation with their class friends. The council is facilitated by Samantha Jackson assistant Principal

Student Council

Kingston Parliament – Members of the student council met with representatives of the Kingston Voice to discuss specific issues faced by young disabled people in Kingston. Some of the issues discussed included transport, access to areas of the town and personal safety.

Student Council in an EHCP consultation meeting – The secondary students from the council met with a consultation group from Achieving for Children to discuss the Education, Health and Care Plan reforms, what they mean, and how we can learn more through their websites.

Regular meetings – Bedelsford Student Council is made up from elected students representing each class group. One of our council aims is to get more young people involved and ensure that young people’s first experience of democracy is a good one. It is also there to help young people learn a wide range of skills that will help them in work and life, such as speaking and listening, teamwork, public speaking and negotiation. The students then return to their class groups and are encouraged to share this information and promote modern democratic British values.

All of our students are expected to attend their EHCP meeting or Annual Review where they have an opportunity to use their Mode of Communication to share their thoughts, opinions and talk about their favourite school activities or their friends. Some students prepare ( with support) their own Power Point Presentation while others dress up in costume of their favourite character or bring to the meeting their favourite toy or a book.

The school is truly ‘outstanding’ indeed and we don’t mean just in the sense of how Ofsted have classified it.
