The students are at the centre of all we do here at Park High and their voice, opinions and involvement are vital for their learning and social development, as well as the overall profile of the school.
It is at Park High that all students feel part of a community that values what they have to say because this is a vital ingredient in maximising their potential, so we listen to the expectations they have of our school, to make it the best possible place for them to learn and prosper as individuals.
Student Voice involves regular face to face and VLE based student consultation in order to gain valuable student feedback on subjects such as student satisfaction with teaching and learning, work experience, reward trips etc. Students feel they have an influence on areas of their educational experience which creates a sense of belonging and pride in THEIR school, helping to strengthen the Park High community, with students and staff working together to make a pleasurable environment to learn in.
Student Voice meeting with Pendle MP Andrew Stephenson
How is Student Voice Formed?
Form representatives are elected by members of their form. Candidates for Year Representatives then submit a short powerpoint presentation to the Form Representatives who then select the Year Representatives. The new Year Representatives and their selected deputies then make up the new school council. They hold the posts for the year and then the voting process begins again for the following school year.
The Role of Student Voice
Students bring issues to their Year or they can leave comments on the Student Voice section of the VLE (currently being developed.) These issues then become the main agenda points and the outcomes of meetings are relayed back to all students during assembly time by the representatives
