On Monday 23 May, over 40 pupils from across GFM’s primary and secondary schools joined together to promote student voice.
At the Quality of Education Conference, the Young Leaders from across Bay House, Brune Park, Rowner Junior and Gomer Junior advocated for their peers to improve the Trust.
At the conference, the young ambassadors were able to interview, challenge and collaborate with Executive colleagues. Pupils openly shared their experiences of school life and what changes they would like to see.
Questions included, ‘how are life skills taught in different subjects?’, ‘how do learners learn best?’, and ‘what makes a good headteacher?’
Year 9 Brune Park student, Edith Mavin said: “Students should be focusing on learning and how they can be doing this best. Initiatives like this are really important.”
