student voice & agency at KVPS
Activating student voice and student agency is important to the learning and wellbeing of our students at KVPS. Therefore the school has initiated several ways in which students can contribute to school wide decision-making processes. These include: Junior School Council, Student Leadership, Peer Mediators, Pupil Professional Learning Teams and randomised student focus groups. All students have the opportunity to express an interest and apply for any of these roles through a formalised application and interview process. Learners have the opportunity to make a real impact at KVPS on decisions from school pride to curriculum development and planning; and assessment. School wide data such as NAPLAN and Student’s Attitude to School responses are shared with learners who help to provide narratives and reasons for the outcomes to help direct teaching and learning. Every year the graduating Year 6 class decides on the legacy that they will leave for their peers and future students to further their learning experience at KVPS.
