Hearing Our Students’ Voice

At Kirkby High we believe it is important to involve our students in decisions which affect them in school.

We do this in a number of ways:

  • Student Parliament – each year group nominates representatives from their form to stand as their year representative and form the student parliament. The student parliament sits twice per half-term.
  • Questionnaires – students are surveyed at different times during their school careers for their opinions on a wide range of school matters including behaviour in class, effectiveness of anti-bullying procedures and quality of teaching. Their responses help to inform school self-review and improvement. This is how we arrived at the choice of uniform and the school name. These findings feed in to the student parliament.
  • Assisting with the appointment of staff – a number of our students are involved in the interviewing of applicants and provide feedback to the appointment panel to help inform the decision making process.
