At Carew Academy we are proud to enable and empower students to voice their opinions and make the change they want to see in their school, their life, and their community.
Carew Academy is proud to have received a ‘Recognition of Commitment’ for its work towards the Unicef ‘Rights Respecting Schools Award’ (RRSA). This is the first stage in the process and we now begin work on achieving the full award. The RRSA is an excellent way for us to teach our pupils about their rights and how to respect the rights of others. It is designed to empower young people, to ensure their views are heard and that they play a full and active role in the success, wellbeing and safety of the school.
Our very own radio station provides a platform for students to speak about issues that are important to them, as well as topics related to their studies, and of course to play some of their favourite songs!
At the start of 2016 we undertook a pupil survey at Carew to find out what our pupils think of their school. There were one or two issues that came up from the survey but, overall, the results were really positive and illustrate how well the school is doing. Here is a link to the full survey results – click here to download it and see for yourselves! We recognise the value of a healthy and vibrant pupil voice within Carew. As such, we will be carrying out similar surveys in the future.
