Academy Life


Pupil Voice and Anti-bullying Ambassadors

Pupil Voice

Pupil Voice is Smith’s Wood Academy’s tool for engaging students to have a real say in issues that affect them, allowing opinions to be shared and be included in decisions that involve and affect them.  Our aim is to promote a sense of collaboration and mutual responsibility for improving the Academy.  Candidates are elected by their peers to represent them and their values with 40 pupils actively participating in regular meetings, specific focus groups and whole school consultation across the academic year.

Anti-bullying Ambassadors

Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors are selected each academic year from years 8-11.  These students receive training both from their peers and The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Campaign.  Their role within the Academy is to help educate their peers on bullying, lead on anti-bullying campaigns, promote a culture which celebrates and tolerates difference and help keep their peers safe both online and offline.  The Anti-Bulling Ambassadors are available every lunchtime in the Upper School Library, to help give advice and support to vulnerable students.

Students who feel they  would like to talk to an Anti-Bullying Ambassador or is interested in becoming  an Ambassador should speak to Mrs Gibson or Mr Rose.

The following students are the current Anti-Bullying Ambassadors:
