At NKS, students are placed at the centre of teaching & learning through our Student Learning Partners initiative. We have appointed six academically-strong volunteers from Years 9 & 10 to be trained about how to conduct a learning visit into another class. These students will go into a younger year group’s lesson where the teacher has volunteered to host their visit and then afterwards have a formal discussion to gain a student’s perspective on the learning experience in that lesson. Shortly after this, the combined team of staff volunteers and Student Learning Partners meet to share and discuss their findings from the experience. This dialogue with staff will allows us to move teaching and learning further forward at NKS. The students will also contribute to the staff CPD Programme as representatives of Student Voice.
