A Multi Academy Trust’s approach to student voice

Director of Safeguarding at Creative Education Trust

About this testimonial

Louis Donald, Director of Safeguarding at Creative Education Trust, 17 schools

Louis explains the platform helps them unpick how students feel across their academies and the wider context of their communities. It provides them with strategic intelligence that ensures they are always pupil led in their approach as a trust. Louis talks about the benefits of providing regular feedback to their students and utilising the tool to ensure their vulnerable young people are heard.

Louis shares a scenario of how one of their vulnerable students used The Student Voice as a safe digital space to raise concerns around the home, where they were able to intervene quickly with multi-agency partners to support the mother and child.

He explains how the tool gives them insight into where strategic themes are working and where they can make continual improvements to keep their 15,000 students safe.
