The Whinhill Leadership Team are responsible for gathering views about how pupils feel about our school. It is important that our pupils have a say in how well their school is doing and how it can be improved.
Self-evaluation is how schools decide what is going well and what could be better. Our pupils help our school identify the actions we need to take to keep Whinhill improving. Our pupils contribution to this is very important.
We will be working on 5 different themes throughout the school year:
Theme 1 – Our relationships
This includes friendships, relationships with teachers and other adults who support us, opportunities to influence things, equality and fairness, ethos and culture, feeling supported and cared for.
Theme 2 – Our learning & teaching
This includes the curriculum, the quality of learning experiences, the range of teaching approaches and access to high-quality resources for learning.
Theme 3 – Our school & community
This includes the facilities and environment for learning, availability of digital technology, the range of equipment for play and physical activity and ensuring everyone has good access to what’s available. It also includes having positive links between our school and our families and with partner organisations in our community.
Theme 4 – Our health & wellbeing
This includes access to good quality nutritious food as well as support for our emotional wellbeing, mental health and physical wellbeing.
Theme 5 – Our successes & achievements
This includes opportunities for achievement in our school and in the community, being able to achieve the best possible progress, awards and qualifications, skills for employment and lifelong learning.
