Pupils’ thoughts and opinions are vital to our school being effective. We follow the Learn to Live principles and have an active school council. Please find more information about both below:
Kingston Parliament – Members of the student council met with representatives of the Kingston Voice to discuss specific issues faced by young disabled people in Kingston. Some of the issues discussed included transport, access to areas of the town and personal safety.
Student Council in an EHCP consultation meeting – The secondary students from the council met with a consultation group from Achieving for Children to discuss the Education, Health and Care Plan reforms, what they mean, and how we can learn more through their websites.
Regular meetings – Bedelsford Student Council is made up from elected students representing each class group. One of our council aims is to get more young people involved and ensure that young people’s first experience of democracy is a good one. It is also there to help young people learn a wide range of skills that will help them in work and life, such as speaking and listening, teamwork, public speaking and negotiation. The students then return to their class groups and are encouraged to share this information and promote modern democratic British values.
