Hi, my name is Paige, I am passionate about representation and I am committed to ensuring that every student has their voice heard. I have experience in representing the student voice having been a course representative previously, as well as undertaking the school representative role last year. I have been able to develop skills such as effective communication and listening skills helping me interpret student comments, I have also gained confidence that has helped me with raising my points at meetings, and I believe these make me an ideal candidate.
If elected I aim to promote different ways that course representatives communicate with the students on their course to try and promote a more varied range of feedback e.g. surveys. I also endeavour to encourage greater communication between course representatives within the school, so that everyone is aware of who they are working with and know that we can work across the courses to achieve beneficial changes for the students who we represent. I will endeavour to see that student ideas are heard by staff so that they understand the opinions of students in their school so that positive change can be made. I think these aims will have a positive impact on the school because, the focus is around promoting representation and making sure that there is as much opportunity for the student voice to be heard as possible, as well as supporting a more harmonious and understanding environment from within the school, its course representatives, and the staff as well. Thank you for reading my manifesto and feel free to get in contact with me to ask me any questions about my ideas.
