Annual Report to Children and Young People 2020-2021

A good education and relevant qualifications are critical to the future of every young person and are vital ingredients to success.

Students are passionate about their education and what choices completing it will offer them beyond school. They’re also aware they need adults to look out for them as they transition from childhood to adolescence. They want to see fundamental changes made to the ways in which their schools engage with them, and they to be given more opportunities to become involved in influencing how their education is delivered, including how subjects are taught to them.

By adopting some small-scale practices at a school level we can create more participatory and inclusive classrooms, more kind and welcoming environments, more engaging and meaningful lessons, and more trusting and respectful relationships between students and teachers.
