Every Tuesday lunchtime the students of the week (after receiving their invitation in assembly)
The students (one from each year group (years 3-13) are invited and attend lunch with the trustees (usually two or three). This is a highlight of the week and a great privilege. Students are selected from staff nominations. On the Monday the successful students are informed and they will have the reasons explained to them as to why they have won this accolade.
During the lunch, trustees will have a briefing sheet explaining these reasons and this will form the basis of the conversations. The event is also a very effective way of students and trustees discussing developments, changes, ideas and concerns. Apart from being a wonderful opportunity for students to celebrate success it is yet another example of how we have a layer of monitoring and accountability within the school.
