Welland Park Academy Student Council
TAKING STUDENT VOICE BACK TO ITS ROOTS
The Student Council are a body of students that meet at 8.15am on Tuesdays in order to help identify & improve on issues that may affect a students’ daily experience at Welland Park.
We relaunched in late September 2017 and have since then been very busy!
So far this academic year we have:
- Re-organised the structure of the Student Council to incorporate 2 tiers – a Full Student Council and an Executive Student Council.
- Been part of the process to elect and then continue to work with the Head Boy and Head Girl.
- Been instrumental in bringing about changes in rota systems for PE equipment and the introduction of sports leggings in PE.
- Successfully applied for funding to supply some classrooms with additional Key Stage 4 specific dictionaries.
- Successfully applied for funding to assist with purchasing stands for text books to improve posture within lessons.
- Taken part in some recent appointments of teaching staff.
- Played an active part in the development of ‘Silver Branch’, a newsletter written and edited by KS4 students.
- Been consulted on potential developments in the dining hall and with the Academy uniform.
- Discussed our rewards and sanctions policies and the possible benefits of a house system.
- Discussed plans for a peer based mentoring system.
Ours in a continuing journey of development. We look forward to representing the student body in making progressive and positive changes to our environment and building a closer community within the Academy.
