Student Voice

Student Voice at Kirkby High School

Students are at the heart of all we do at Kirkby High School, and one of the ways in which students are able to contribute to school life is through student voice.

Rationale

Student voice is planned out throughout the academic year to allow students the opportunity to feed back on key areas of our school. Through student voice, we aim to:

  • Provide students with clear opportunities through form time to provide their views on aspects of school life
  • Enable wider discussions to occur through the student parliament on key elements
  • Ensure that student voice compliments the curriculum provision for our students
  • Ensure that appropriate changes are implemented to ensure that students remain at the heart of school life

Form Time Student Voice Overview 2021-2022

Throughout the year, students are consulted on a variety of themes, such as:

  • Rewards
  • Homework
  • Personal Development Learning
  • Student wellbeing and mental health
  • The school environment
  • The importance of good attendance
  • Curriculum and student/teacher feedback
  • Reflecting on the year

Student Parliament

The student parliament meets twice half-termly, to discuss a variety of issues pertinent to students. The structure of the student parliament is as follows:

  • 2 year group representatives from years 7-10
  • Head Boy and Head Girl
  • Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl

Subject Specific Student Voice

As part of our school Quality Assurance processes, students are asked to complete subject-specific student voice each half-term within individual faculties and departments.
