Pupil Agency Survey

Earlier this academic year we asked all our students to take part in a Pupil Agency Survey. This was done during tutor-time and asked students for their opinions and suggestions on a variety of topics.

  • We feel that there is more focus on the academic rather than pastoral and personal development.
  • We only sometimes have opportunity to raise ideas that are important to us.
  • Methods to express opinions are only partly effective.
  • People who make decision don’t always hear our views and we do not know if they have been acted upon.
  • Restart the full Student Council to enable representatives from each class to share ideas with each other and the senior leadership team.
  • Launch The Student Ambassadors Programme to support students moving into The Boulevard Academy from Chiltern and St Georges by developing student leadership skills.
  • Further increase careers opportunities in KS3
  • Develop the mechanism for student and staff voice across faculties more frequently. Use the Space, Voice, Audience and Influence methodology.
  • Improve communication through the appropriate channels such as website, social media, MyEd.
  • Increase the number of drop-down days in KS3 to incorporate culture days/ no ICT days/ Collaborative Learning days (Teamwork) etc.
  • Increase coffee mornings/ support workshops, for parental support, such as well-being, safeguarding, EAL, SEND, SLT meet & greet.
  • Pre-plan all surveys to staff, pupils and parents for the next academic year to ensure appropriate coverage of aspects and quicker response to updating stakeholders.
