You Said... We Did...

YOU SAID: We want more choice with rewards, and we don’t want to wait until 50 points to get a reward. WE DID:

Student Voice focus for 2019-20 will be the redevelopment of the rewards policies.

YOU SAID: We need more lockers, and the ones in the cloakroom under the hall are not very nice. WE DID:

The lockers under the hall have all been replaced and raised from the floor so that they no longer get affected if there is flooding. Plus extra lockers were put into the new building.

YOU SAID: We need more indoor seating area in the winter. WE DID:

The hall was opened up so that you have more indoor space when it gets cold.

YOU SAID: We would like nice furniture to relax during break and lunch time. WE DID:

The science atrium has been furnished with sofas for relaxation.

YOU SAID: We would like to play games at break and lunchtime. WE DID:

The Science Atrium has a box of games provided, plus there are card games and jigsaws in the wellbeing room

YOU SAID: We would like more space to socialise and sit with our friends. WE DID:

The Maths Atrium, Science Atrium and the patio areas have all been furnished with additional seating and tables for you to use.

YOU SAID: We would like teachers to understand our mental wellbeing more fully and be able to support us. We would also like our parents to understand better. WE DID:

Training has been provided for teachers on youth mental health first aid, plus Sixth Form students and parents took part.

YOU SAID: The Sixth Form students would like more space, with a TV, games to play and a football table, plus sockets to charge phones and laptops. WE DID:

The new Common Room was designed with input from current and prospective Sixth Form students.

YOU SAID: The Sixth Form students would like help making connections with universities and businesses for their future careers. WE DID:

The University Centred Learning Programme (UCLP) continues to develop with more links, for each subject area and specific projects and activities for enrichment days.

YOU SAID: We would like more choice of day trips for enrichment week, rather than everyone in the year group doing the same trips. WE DID:

Y8-9 this year chose from a menu of trips and activities, so each student could do as many or few trips as they liked.

YOU SAID: Wouldn’t it be nice if all of year 7 were able to go away together. WE DID:

The year 7 camp was created, a whole year group in the woods all week!

YOU SAID: We would like more opportunities to raise money for charity. WE DID:

Each year group has a charity week during the year to be as creative as you like with the way you raise money. Plus of course we have the Christmas Fayre and House RAG week!

YOU SAID: Y11 & Y13 wanted more time for revision at home, rather than being set homework on top of revision. WE DID:

Each department provided Y11 and Y13 with a revision programme to follow and designated homework slots for them to complete their revision.

YOU SAID: Y11 and Y13 wanted more time to complete coursework and/or have additional support from teachers. WE DID:

A huge number of support sessions have been provided by teachers, including Saturday morning and holiday sessions for Y11 and Y13.

YOU SAID: We don’t see the benefit of starting period 5 at 1.55pm. We would like 5 min extra lunch break. WE DID:

Period 5 will start at 2pm in September, lunch will be from 1.15pm until 2pm.
