Being Heard

Description

At Hanham High School in Bristol, headteacher Peggy Farrington wants to engage her students in their learning and is keen for pupils to provide as much feedback as possible on their lessons.

Recently, pupils have been asked to fill out questionnaires capturing this feedback at the end of each lesson. In this programme, we see a video made by Year 11 pupils that documents this system in action.

Find out how constructive the students have been in their feedback, and see how teacher Lucy Croft deals with the challenge of addressing their concerns. What are the benefits of this system for staff and pupils?

Back in the studio, consultant Adrienne Jones is joined by headteacher Peggy and other staff to discuss the video. The experiment at Hanham looks set to be extended, but is it reasonable to allow pupil voice to encroach on performance management?
