What pupils think is very important to us at West Craven High School. We have a very active School Council that meets at least twice each half term. Each form group sends two representatives to each meeting to represent their views and bring to the attention of the Head and Governors issues that are of concern to pupils. The School Council is consulted and plays a part in the design and use of the building, staff appointments, the curriculum and the way pupils are taught at school.
In class pupils are regularly consulted by their teachers and Heads of Department about learning strategies that are most effective in addressing their needs.
The Head Teacher and Senior Leadership Team operate an open door policy for pupils which means that pupils who have any issues at school are listened to immediately.
During the 2015/16 Academic Year, the School Council requested new dining chairs and tables - these were installed in January; new football nets were requested and are now being used, thanks to Jeff Tipler at Samba Sports and students requested something be done about the congestion at lunchtime, school have trialed and has implemented a staggered break and lunchtime for upper and lower school.
