Make Yourself Heard
Student Voice is well established at Harlington and involves lots of students in a whole range of different activities.
The Student Leadership Group is made up of students from every year group and is led by the Head Boy and Head Girl Team. The group is used as a forum to discuss and obtain feedback on subjects including bullying, anti-social behaviour, marketing the school and website design.
Here are just a few of the activities that students have taken part in at Harlington Upper School:
- Talking to Ofsted during the last inspection
- Attending Governor meetings
- Organising and leading a Harlington 'Bake Off' competition for Upper, Middle and Lower School students
- Redesigning the Sixth Form common room, ICT room, dining room, library and Learning Support rooms.
- Interviewing and observing teachers who have applied to work at Harlington
- Peer mentors helping to support each other at Harlington, Arnold and Parkfields
- Organising and leading several inter-house sporting and fund raising events
The students at Harlington have achieved a lot in the last year but there is still more to do with Student Voice in the future so if you are interested in making your opinions heard or would like the opportunity to become involved in the various House Councils, Sports or Charity Committees - or even the Student Leadership Group then please ask your Form Tutors how you can get involved or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Student focus groups are regularly used across all age ranges to obtain the views of students on important issues.
