Partnership Student Council
Headington Partnership has established a Partnership Student Council, comprising representatives from each of the 5 individual School Councils, with some adults on hand to help with arrangements and give advice.

The purpose is to share and gather information about successes and issues that affect the young people in all the local schools and, where possible, to propose solutions. The Chair and Secretary’s roles have previously been taken by students from Cheney but they may eventually train the younger Councillors.

Partnership Student Council meeting : 14.11.13 : Risky behaviours

14 Councillors from the 4 Partnership primary schools met at Windmill School with Lesley Williams, Partnership Coordinator, and 3 members of school staff in support and with  Rachel Taylor, who is Oxfordshire County Council Senior Engagement Officer.

Rachel is doing some research and asked a series of questions about what the children perceive as ‘risky’ and whether  they know what to do when they feel unsafe or threatened; and why people do wrong/silly/dangerous things. The Councillors responded with an amazingly long list; wisdom on how to keep safe and mature perception about reasons for behaviours.

You can read all their answers here.
