Life Skills has got off to a flying start this academic year, which started with sharing the results of the student voice survey with each year group.
This included many questions including whether students enjoy Life Skills, if students feel confident giving views and opinions and if they feel listened to during lessons. The results were very positive. Students also had the opportunity to suggest improvements.
With the new style exercise books (the logo was designed by Abi L in Year 11 last year), every student completed their first lesson about the various topics covered within Life Skills and how they feel about some of the content. This was also an opportunity to try out the new style baseline assessment.
The survey also asked for student volunteers for a focus group and the response was overwhelming to say the least. This group will be present at parents’ evenings to give out information and advice about their particular year group and inform parents about the opportunity to complete a parental questionnaire.
I am also still hoping to start a parent focus group. If you are interested, please contact me directly.
