At Ravensbourne we now have a Student Council. The group meets regularly and has input to events and special days throughout the school.
Our pupils are at the centre of everything we do and their voice is actively encouraged, valued and respected. Many of our pupils are pre-verbal or have significant communication difficulties. Staff use a range of strategies to ensure every pupils’ voice is heard including signing, PECs, gestures, eye pointing, body language, switches, AAC devices and verbal communication ranging from sounds to the spoken word.
Staff always inform pupils of what will be happening next and are skilled at interpreting their responses and interactions.
