Holloway School Student Voice is made up of -
School Councillors, who ensure that students at Holloway have a voice that is heard.
Each form group has a member of the School Council who is elected by their class. They meet regularly to discuss whole school issues and are an important consultation body for the school leadership team. School Councillors have played an important role in improving the environment of Holloway School, particularly in ensuring improvements to the playground, peace garden and dining facilities and the choice of the new school logo.
Peer Mentors, who work with staff to ensure that all Holloway Students feel safe and secure.
Peer mentors are Year 10 students who are trained to support and mentor students to ease their transition from primary school to Holloway. They also offer support to other students facing challenges at home or school. Peer Mentors are trained to resolve incidents of conflict or bullying through restorative justice sessions . Restorative justice works on the principle that when one person has harmed another, the most useful response is to try to repair the harm done. In this victims can express how they have been hurt and the perpetrators learn to understand the consequences of their behaviour and take responsibility for repairing the harm.
Senior Students, who are the most responsible students and provide the best role models in the school.
Senior Students are Year 11 students chosen because of their outstanding attitude, past contributions or potential to improve Holloway School. Senior students undertake duties around the school, including the recording of student lateness and the supervision of playground and corridors. They also represent the school at public functions, lead restorative justice sessions and train other students of the student voice. The Head Boy and Girl are chosen by the Headteacher from the Senior Students.
