Student Voice

Student Voice Co-ordinator: Mr L Goodlad
lgoodlad@cedarsupper.org.uk

Student Voice plays a significant role in the life and culture of Cedars Upper. It is led by our Year 13 Senior Students who are elected in the summer term by the entire Sixth Form, Year 11 students and staff.  These students lead the school council and the Help Week committee. They meet with the student voice co-ordinator every fortnight to ensure the voice of the students is continually heard.

Each autumn, the houses elect House leaders and other posts for entertainment, sport and student support. These students and representatives of the anti-bullying group, school newspaper and student interviewers form the school council. The council meets every two weeks to discuss issues and raise concerns. This year, they have been involved in discussions regarding uniform changes, the praise system, and how student voice can develop further at Cedars. Each house also has a council which consists of the house leaders and a representative from each of the tutor groups.
