Student voice… starting up
I inherited an embryonic Student Leadership programme, as opposed to a more typical school council at Blackfen. You can have long debates about the best way to build a meaningful student voice in the school (and we no doubt will!), but whatever system you choose, it doesn’t count for anything unless other students know it exists! One way we’ve tried to build awareness in our school is through assemblies, and a special video the students made. Here’s a shortened version of it, and I’ll update you with more progress later this term.
