At Ormiston Chadwick Academy we are really proud of all of our students and value their ideas and opinions. That’s why it is vitally important for us to listen to our students and in order for us to do that we use pupil surveys and have a student council.
This consists of two pupils that have been voted for by the school to represent OCA within the North region with other OAT schools. It enables then to have a voice at a regional level and join in with important debates and issues that are close to the pupil’s hearts. It allows them to meet a range of diverse individuals and create projects to raise money for various charities within the local and reginal area.
These two pupils then feedback to the school in order to allow us, as an academy to implement new ideas that are important to all our young people.
Along with the two pupils from the leadership team the student council consists of two further pupils from each group. They will meet once a half term to again discuss ideas from Oat North region but also ideas from our ow pupils. We will be looking at developing pupil wellbeing and mental health, bullying, social media, body image and healthy eating, as well as any other issues the pupils wish to focus on. This will also run alongside charity events to allow us to raise money for local charities such as the Widnes Foodbank.

These happen once a week and link to the theme of the assembly each week. One pupil from each form will complete their student voice to feedback ideas and thoughts on what we do well and what we could develop within school. These will then be analysed by the student council to identify what other pupils would like throughout school.
