Student Voice in Learning – 2021/2022
On Wednesday 3rd November, our Student Voice in Learning Leaders attending the final Marion Coast Partnership SVIL Session for 2021. Our school was represented by Penny, Stella, Nicolas, Ava, Harveen and Senna.
Stretch-thinking and learning observations
We began the session by working on a stretch-thinking task where our learning was observed and shared. The observations about what was seen and heard was shared as feedback at the conclusion of the task.
The remainder of the session focused on each school reflecting on our work over the year.
Each school was given a range of questions to discuss and respond to with our results shared with the audience of students and leadership.
Here is a summary of Seacliff Primary School’s reflections:
How many classes were involved in the observation and feedback process? We have observed around 10 classes throughout the school and we have involved our classes somehow in SVIL.
How has your work improved learning? (yourself, your team, your school)?
It has improved the feedback that we give to students and teachers because they know where to look and help to see where the students are at and where to next.
What have you done?
We have observed many classrooms and them constructive feedback.
How do you know if have achieved this? What evidence do you have?
We have seen improvements in student’s learning and students can confidently share the learning intention and success criteria for the task they are working on.
What are your school’s SVIL next steps?
To get more younger students involved e.g. years 4, 5 and 6
What do we need to…
Let other students throughout the years 4, 5 and 6 know about SVIL and start a campaign to get them involved.
-stop doing? N/A
-make even better?
Practice the type of feedback we give to students and teachers
Being more organised and setting up more observations.
In concluding, I would like to congratulate all our SVIL leaders and thank them for their enthusiasm for their involvement and dedication to their role, even when meeting at times when they might miss out on their favourite lessons! We wish Nicolas, Ava, Harveen and Stella all the very best for 2022 as they head of to new schools next year.
