What is Student Voice
Student Voice empowers our students to influence their own learning and experience at Ark Helenswood Academy.
Every tutor group in the academy is represented by a School Council member. School council members are expected to attend frequent school council meetings to discuss issues raised by their form. These meetings are led by the Head Girl, and are supported by the wider School Council team. During these meetings a range of issues are discussed, including teaching and learning, rewards, behaviour, safety, homework, celebrations and community work.
The School Council organises and supports a range of school events including the Senior Citizens’ Christmas Party and the Prom at the end of Year 11. The students also lead on the following charity events each year: Pink Day which supports breast cancer charities, Children in Need, Comic Relief and Place 2 Be, a charity that provides a counselling service for young people.
