The Student Voice is an innovative platform that provides a safe and confidential space for students to share their thoughts and feelings.
It also allows schools to collect and analyse data that can be used to improve teaching and learning, safeguarding, mental health, and overall school experience.
Designed to remove the fear and stigma attached to reporting issues; The Student Voice is an interactive and child-friendly reporting tool that utilises interactive maps of all the contexts that your young people spend time in, so your school or college can improve these spaces with more targeted and effective interventions, and ultimately prevent future harm.
The Student Voice is an interactive and child-friendly reporting tool providing safe spaces for over 30,000 students across independent, state, and international schools and multi-academy trusts. It is featured on the Contextual Safeguarding Network, and won the 2022 ‘Health and Wellbeing’’ Teach Secondary Award.
Young people can navigate a series of interactive maps of all the contexts that they spend time in (school, home, and the local community), and RAG rate how safe they feel in these spaces using a universal traffic light system.
Complimenting adult reporting systems, schools and DSLs are able to provide immense wrap around safeguarding provision; supporting the individual, whilst using the contextual data to implement targeted interventions, and prevent future harm occurring in those spaces. It is helping DSLs tackle the full range of issues, from child-on-child abuse issues, to mental health, bullying and online safety, with a 100% renewal rate across our schools.
“We have been struggling to engage with a particular student for quite a few months. We launched The Student Voice this week, promoting it to our students as a safe space for them to voice anything that is concerning them and that we want to hear from them. We are very pleased to say that within the first few days, the student used the system to articulate their worries and what support they feel could help them.
The Student Voice has provided an invaluable safe space for our students to feel comfortable to communicate with us.”
