Student Voice and participation

At Limpsfield Grange we believe that listening to the opinions of our students is very important, and the School Council is an opportunity for students to make their views count.

The School Council aims to promote the best interests of the school, and provide an effective channel of communication between students across the school community and the school Leadership Team. Membership of the Student Council is voluntary and self-selecting. The School Council meets weekly, and Mrs Sabey oversees the smooth running of meetings.

Members of the Student Council raise issues on behalf of their peers, and will have a regular slot in assembly to feedback on issues and actions to the wider school community. The School Council has a noticeboard where issues raised and actions taken are displayed.

At Limpsfield Grange we have a House system. Each House has a House Captain and Deputy House Captain who are responsible for choosing a charity for their House to support across the year; for organizing fund raising events for their charity; for representing their House in assembly and for representing the school in the wider community. Students apply for the roles of House Captain and Deputy House Captain through writing a statement of intent.

Students at Limpsfield Grange also meet with members of our Governor Body regularly. Our Chair of Governors works with students each week, and our Residential Governor meets with residential students each term. We have also recently introduced Governor Tea Parties where each tutor group is given an opportunity to meet with Governors in the informal setting of a tea party to discuss their ideas and views about the school.
