This page is written by students from the Webbo team. Student Voice is important to us, and other students because it gives us a heads up in life about leadership skills and boosts our confidence. Student Voice also provides opportunities for fellow students to develop themselves as a person, becoming morte responsible in school. It is also about pupils and staff working together, developing positive working relationships to improve he school as a learning community.
Alongside this the Leaders and Teams should strategically plan, support and drive the Student Voice forward to ensure it is a powerful and effective force in school development and success.
