Student Voice

We are committed to listening to the views of students as the primary beneficiaries of education to provide each child with a first-class education. All students have a responsibility to provide helpful and honest feedback to the school so that we can help make it ‘great’.

Student Congress

Our school congress is made up of a group of students elected by their peers to represent their opinions and raise issues with the staff and governors in the school. The school council can also take forward projects on behalf of the students, be involved in improving the school, attend governing body meetings and contribute to staff appointments.

Each form elects two students to represent them. It is from these year teams that our school council is elected. 

Why do we have a School Congress?

Participation literally means ‘taking part’. As young people in Wales, the right set out in Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) entitles you to have a say in things which affect you. Your school council is a way of doing this but never forget that it can only be as effective as its members!

What’s in it for you?

You can gain important skills such as listening to others, put your ideas across and work as a team. It is your chance to work with your peers and adults. Why not make your voice heard?

Recent Actions

The school council played a significant role in the recent introduction of a new school uniform. The council not only co-ordinated the process but also communicated the decisions, met with staff and helped implement the new uniform. Canvassing the views of other students throughout the process, the council helped support students and families to ensure the correct decisions were made which ensured all students felt part of the process.
