At Horndean Technology College we pride ourselves on giving our students the opportunities to voice their opinions, views and beliefs within a respectful environment. Our Student Voice, overseen by Miss Landre our Equal Opportunities Co-Ordinator, ensures our students can pursue a particular area of interest or contribute to a wide range of roles, having a real impact on our whole College.
Our Student Voice is very closely linked to our rights respecting approach to education with the principles of a rights respecting College being at the heart of our Student Voice. This quote from our OFSTED report sums up why our students make HTC ‘the place to be’.
“Pupils are proud of their school and appreciate all that it offers them. They wear their uniform smartly, talk enthusiastically about their learning, and treat each other and members of staff with respect. Pupils are keen to do well and are proud when their individual contributions are rewarded. This is an inclusive school community where difference and diversity are celebrated and embraced. As one pupil explained, ‘everyone gets accepted for who they are.’”
An overview of our Student Voice structure is below, which includes a list of their roles. We are proud of creating a provision which is accessible by all our students and we encourage all students to broaden their own views and beliefs by contributing to Student Voice at HTC. We strongly believe these roles develop our students’ confidence and resilience as well as providing them with essential lifelong skills.
