At Sutton House Academy we recognise the pupils are at the heart of everything we do. To ensure we make decisions in the best interest of our pupils, it is vital their voice is heard. This enables better communication between pupils and the school, improves relationships between pupils and teachers, increases pupil engagement and provides the right conditions for the school community to flourish.

Pupils are able to share their thoughts, suggestions and feedback via the following opportunities:

  • Becoming a member of the School Council.
  • Engaging in tutor time where School Council agenda items are discussed prior to the next meeting.
  • Write down ideas/feedback (with support of staff if required) and add to the “Ask it basket”.
  • Annual Review pupil views.
  • Individual Support Plan target reviews with tutor.
  • Pupils are able to talk to any adult about their thoughts, wishes and feelings so feedback is also obtained informally during lessons/tutor time/1-1 keyworker time.

Below are the dates for pupil voice meetings during the current academic year.
