Student voice - The School We'd Like

Spotted in The Guardian newspaper are the results of their competition where students contributed ideas as to what they would like to see in their own schools..

Primary, Secondary and Special schools entered with apparently lots of exciting ideas.  That shouldn't that surprise anyone? We all know that students are creative, innovative and can be very ambitious in their aspirations.

So pedal powered energy, graffiti wall with associated skills and business opportunities and accessible outdoor learning zones are the winners.  Some of these may not be truly innovative, but having groups of students thinking about improving their learning environments is a winning combination for all really.  

Well done to all those who entered, but especially winners: Horniman Primary School, Salendine Nook High School and Ifield Foundation Special School.
