Student Leadership

Pupil Voice 

At Carew Academy we are proud to enable and empower students to voice their opinions and make the changes they want to see in their school, their life and their community. We want to nurture a culture where all pupils feel listened to, valued and respected. 

Every class has a Pupil Voice representative, who has been elected by the peers in their class. Pupil voice meets every half term to discuss issues from all aspects of the school.  

Pupil Voice enables pupils to: 

  • Develop the skills to express opinions, reflect on experiences and influence the decision making process 
  • Develop  the skills of reflective thought, empowering pupils to empathise with others, to appreciate different points of view and to solve problems 
  • Develop a sense of responsible citizenship within the school and the wider community 

Here is what some of the Pupil Voice Reps say about their role: 

 

Batikan, Year 8: “Pupil Voice makes me feel like a V.I.P. I like helping the school get better and better.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jake, Year 13: “It’s important all pupils know they have a voice.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Student Ambassadors 

We recognise the value of a healthy and vibrant Pupil Voice at Carew and to further promote student empowerment, we run a Student Ambassador programme. This programme enables students to develop the skills necessary to become effective leaders. All pupils are encouraged to apply for the available positions and successful applicants are then interviewed by members of the Senior Leadership Team. The Student Ambassador programme consists of: 

  • Community Ambassadors  

These ambassadors raise awareness of our community and charity based initiatives such as ECO Schools, Rights Respecting Schools and WE Schools. 

  • A  Achievement Ambassadors 

These ambassadors represent their Houses and promote the achievement of all the pupils in their House through the various House Events organised throughout the school year. 

  • R  Reputation Ambassadors

These ambassadors show visitors around the school sharing their in-depth  knowledge of what we offer and answering the visitors’ questions.

  • E  Employability Ambassadors  

These ambassadors take part in the recruitment process by interviewing all new staff. 

  • W  Well Being Ambassadors

These ambassadors play a key role in the playground by promoting kindness and strategies to ensure all pupils feel included during break times.

Here is what some of the ambassadors say about their role:  

 

Faye, Year 9, Reputation Ambassador: “Being an ambassador has made me more confident.”

 

   

 

   

 

 

 

Jeremy, Year 10, Employability Ambassador: “I enjoy doing this important job for the school. My communication skills have improved.”

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jolie, Year 7, Well Being Ambassador: “Doing this job makes me feel proud of myself.”

 

 

 

The school is making such a difference to the lives of our young people. I am immensely proud of all that you are achieving.

Cllr Ruth Dombey, Leader of Sutton Council
