Student Voice is a strength of The Roseland Academy. We hold annual student surveys in addition to utilising a college system and a student council, so that students’ views and ideas are communicated directly to college leaders.
A selection of students meet with school governors in order to express themselves freely and some students can become Associate Student Governors, attending a range of governing body meetings to share their own and their peers’ views on a variety of topics.
Student Learning Detectives support the excellent teaching and learning within the Academy by undertaking targeted classroom-based evaluations across the curriculum. They are invited to feedback on learning and in doing so support the vital communication between learners and teaching staff.
Students also play an integral part in the interviewing and recruitment of new staff.
Students at The Roseland have many opportunities to become involved in Student Leadership. We have various categories of prefects who attend school events as ambassadors for the school, delivering speeches and votes of thanks on formal occasions. We recruit prefects to run a mentoring service for younger students and support students who need more reading practice. Student College Leaders and Sports Leaders
can be recognised around school by their ties.
Fundraising is a strong example of our student-led activities; almost every term
students run various events for charities that they are involved in or wish to support. Recent examples have included a non-uniform day for the Cornwall Air Ambulance, Race for Life, Christmas Jumper Day and Children in Need appeal.
The Duke of Edinburgh and Sports Leaders Award schemes enable our students to hone their leadership skills whilst also contributing to the local community in various ways, especially at Primary Sports Network events. Singing Leaders ensure that daily singing assemblies are an energising and uplifting start to the day. Our eLC/ Library Leaders help to ensure that any students who wish to take part in break and lunchtime activities are able to do so.
