Student Voice

Hummersknott Academy is a community and as such believes that all members of its community are of equal value and invaluable worth. At Hummersknott Academy we believe that all students are entitled to contribute actively in shaping the educational experience they and their fellow students receive, effective delivery of this policy will give them the opportunity to do so. As well as assisting in young people’s learning and social development, such student involvement is also of active benefit to the academy performance. Hummersknott Academy is committed to placing student voice at the centre of lesson planning, design of the wider curriculum and all areas of academy life.

What are Student Voice and Student Leaders?

Student Voice is the system through which young people are enabled to give their opinions and suggestions on academy life in an open, honest, secure yet constructive way. Student leadership enables students to actively participate in the day-to-day running and the improvement and development of the academy.
