The voice of our students at Harris Academy Beckenham is of vital importance. Please click below to complete a survey to help continue to improve your student experience.
The voice of our students plays an important part in the successful running of the Academy. There are many avenues through which students can voice their views, both informally and formally. As you can see from the student voice structure below there is a clear process for students being involved in the running of the academy, from their first day at the school.
If you would like to find out more about our student voice at Harris Academy Beckenham then please email Mr Christopher: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Head Girl and Head Boy
The Head Boy and Head Girl in Year 12 lead on all elements of student voice, overseeing the Student Commission and Student Leadership group that meet on a regular basis. Meet our senior student leaders for 2019-20!
Student Leadership Group
The Student Leadership Group (SLG) meets once a half term and is made up of a student from each tutor group across years 7-10.To be part of the SLG, students are elected in the first term of each year.
An agenda is created by staff, and students are given time to prepare for each meeting with their fellow tutor group members. Minutes are written up for each meeting and presented back to senior staff where actions are put in place. Feedback is then given to the rest of the student body via HouseMail at the end of our weekly assemblies.
The Student Commission meets once a month throughout the academic year and is made up of 20-30 students from years 7-12. This group of students are split into three focus groups: leaders of learning who assess the learning in the classroom; an action group who focus on change that the Student Leadership Group (see above) discuss; and a research group who find out relevant issues amongst the student body. To be part of the Student Commission students are required to complete an application form.
If your son/daughter is successful in becoming part of the Student Leadership Group or the Student Commission the dates for each meeting are listed below. Although these can be subject to change both parents and students will be notified if this is to happen.
