MHS Students at Croydon Council

MHS Students at Croydon Scrutiny Committee

 

Tuesday 6th December 2016, four of our Year 11 students; Brandon, Mazlum, Mollie and Paul, joined Mr. Giles in attending Croydon Council’s Scrutiny Sub-Committee for Children and Young People. We had been invited to attend by Mr David Butler, Head of School Standards, Commissioning and Learning Access for Croydon Council to talk about the work we do at Meridian High School around mentoring our students towards GCSE success and pathways for post-16 education.

 

 The role of the Scrutiny Committee is to:

  • Examine decisions, policies and performance of the council and its partner agencies
  • Hold council decision makers to account
  • Make recommendations for change that must be considered by the relevant decision-makers
  • Set up local action reviews to investigate issues in greater depth
  • Make sure that the people of Croydon are getting the best out of their public services.

 

Our students and Mr. Giles were asked a lot of questions about the work we do in the school to continue to bring about improvements and the councillors were especially impressed by the confidence of each student had in expressing their clear opinions. The councillors wanted to have a good understanding of the power that good mentoring can provide and were so impressed by our students that they hoped other schools could learn from us.

 

The entire session was broadcast live on the Council’s online T.V. site and it was watched by many eager friends and family members. If you would like to watch the students in action you can catch a recording of the broadcast here: http://croydon.public-i.tv/core/portal/webcast_interactive/257809.
