Student Voice

What is Student Voice?

At Outwood Academy Danum we believe that all students are entitled to contribute actively in shaping the educational experience and contribute to the wider academy. Through Student Voice Satellite groups, young people will have the opportunity to take a part in the ongoing improvements in the Academy environment; the learning of all students, the well-being of students and staff, the management of behaviour, including praising and celebrating success, and the decisions which affect the way we change and develop.

The main objectives are to:

  • Engage in constructive dialogue with teachers and support staff.
  • Support the needs of other students in the Academy.
  • Give students the skills and qualities necessary to develop both during their time in the Academy and in future life.
  • Develop leadership skills by encouraging innovation and applying it to the pastoral and academic development of the academy.
  • Embed approaches to teaching and learning that encourage learners to take greater responsibility for their own progress and achievement.
