Student Voice at HLP

Student Voice
At Haringey Learning Partnership, we believe that every student's voice matters. We provide a supportive and inclusive environment where students are encouraged to express their opinions, share their experiences, and make a difference. We believe that giving students a voice helps them to develop their confidence, self-esteem, and resilience. By valuing their opinions and involving them in decision-making processes, we empower our students to take ownership of their education and shape their futures.

We offer a range of opportunities for students to voice their thoughts and ideas, from regular feedback sessions with staff, to engaging with local leaders such as MPs and councillors. We also encourage our students to get involved in school-wide events, such as fundraising and charity initiatives, to make a positive impact on their community. By fostering a culture of student voice and participation, we aim to create an environment where every student feels heard, valued, and supported to achieve their full potential.

Examples of recent student voice opportunities include:


  • Speaking at the Houses of Parliament as national ‘Send My Friend to School’ champions for Oxfam
  • Working with Actorshop and Haringey Council to produce a film about the impact of stop and search on young people
  • Meeting with MPs David Lammy, Catherine West, Will Quince, and Wes Streeting on a variety of issues, including school exclusions, mental health, and the importance of literacy in schools
  • Campaigning with Citizens UK to increase the minimum wage of local care workers
  • Working with Haringey Council to develop the borough’s local offer for students with SEND
  • Creating a film with deep:black about the impact of school exclusion on mental health
  • Meeting with Catherine West MP and Leader of Haringey Council, Peray Ahmet, for International Women’s Day
