Our students expect to be treated with respect for their individual differences. They are able to pursue their own passions in learning within a challenging and engaging curriculum. They formulate their own ideas, are encouraged to question, to take risks and to make and learn from their mistakes.
“A school is a place for the education of students. But at a base level a school is a business, a business providing a service for its customers, the students. The way that a business improves its service is by gathering feedback, and how is this feedback collected? Through market research and surveys. I’ve always been passionate about student voice, ever since I moved to Preshil in year 5. I believe that it is extremely important for students to be heard and listened to by their school. If students are given a strong voice, they will feel that they can make a positive contribution to the world when they leave school. This is what motivated me to create a survey that gave students an anonymous, formal and official way of giving their feedback on their learning.
I hope in the future that students will have a much stronger voice in education so they will feel like they are able to make a difference.”
