Benefits for Children and Young People

There is a strong inclusion framework that all our schools commit to, securing an infrastructure in each school. This framework is designed to support our children and young people throughout their time at school and their entire learning journey. This is backed by our EDIB strategy – equality, diversity, inclusion and belonging. In everything we do we embrace and support the uniqueness of every individual – from children and young people to our teachers – and we educate on the importance of understanding and respecting each and every individual voice.

Supporting a sense of belonging

As a Trust we understand that all our children and young people need a sense of belonging.

Our schools are all unique as they reflect the community they serve. They take pride in working with their children and their families to be at the heart of their local environment.

For our children and young people, it’s about giving them a voice.  So collectively the ‘ONE VOICE’ at the Marches Academy Trust helps drive the decision making and reflection at our Trust.

This group has a commitment:

  • To enable our Trust children and young people to be able to share their individual voice, views, comments, and ideas.
  • To ensure involvement of children and young people in the Trust’s decision making.
  • To make sure that children and young people at Marches Academy Trust have a place to voice their concerns.

  • To encourage all children in our school to suggest improvements that not only will improve their school, but all Trust schools.
  • To make sure that any suggestions or concerns are listened to and acted upon.
  • Give a space to discuss wider issues and ideas that arise in class/individual schools and secure these are then being listened to by the Trust through the Executive team.
  • The voice then taking discussions back into their schools so this ensures that as many voices as possible are heard.
