Student Voice

Students are the heart of our school – and their views and thoughts are important. That is why Student Voice matters – and why it is a central to the ethos of Little Heath School.

Student Voice is concerned with respect and partnership between students and teachers. We want to engage with young people, helping them to unlock their talents and potential. It is important to give them a stake in their school, in their learning and in their futures. Student Voice is about empowering students to contribute, harnessing their good ideas and allowing them to play a positive part in the life and work of the school.

Student Voice is also a powerful vehicle through which important learning skills (e.g. communication & listening) can be developed and practised . Student Voice also develops confidence and self esteem. Many of our former students, who have been involved with Student Voice during their time at Little Heath, have found that it has really helped them  on a personal level, and in their future pathways.

This year, as ever, our Student Voice programme is broad and varied, with projects including SMILE mentoring, Students As Learning Partners research work, as well as our strong School Council and annual Charity fundraising. Our Student Ambassadors welcome visitors to the school, and are present at Parents Evenings, Open Evenings and other key school events.

Students from all year groups are involved in the Student Voice programme and, through their effective participation, they make a positive difference to our school. We are very grateful to them for all that they do and the positive and enthusiastic way in which they take part.

Student Voice is ever growing – it matters because young people are important and their voice matters.
