At The County High School, we value the student voice and see it as an important means of communication between staff and students. We believe that valuing the student voice in school helps contribute towards students’ citizenship education. It allows them to become involved in the life of the school as a whole and thus encourages the personal and social development of all.
Tutors provide regular opportunities to facilitate discussions of any issues that affect students. These issues are then discussed with staff at council meetings. Members of our school council are democratically elected on an annual basis. We have Year Council meetings and School Council Meetings monthly. Our councils discuss and act upon issues related to learning, the environment and the community.
Recently we have discussed how students learn best, how to improve facilities at lunch time and how we view ourselves as a community.
