What is Student Voice

Student Voice is an organisation which empowers students at Outwood Academy Foxhills to become more engaged with the mechanisms for learning, progress and improvement, both within the Academy and the community. Student Voice is all about listening to students and allowing them to express their opinions, and to have those opinions taken into account, in matters which affect them.

Student Voice gives students the opportunity to suggest, manage and promote projects which aim to improve the Academy and the wider community.

Why is Student Voice Important?

Students remain at the heart of everything we undertake at Outwood Academy Foxhills and The Family of Schools, therefore Student Voice is placed at the centre of everything that we undertake. The main objectives are to:

*embed approaches to teaching and learning that encourage learners to take greater responsibility for their own progress and achievement

*engage in constructive dialogue with teachers

*give them the skills and qualities necessary to develop both during their time in the Academy and in future life

*develop their leadership skills by encouraging innovation and applying it to the pastoral and academic development of the Academy
