Pupil Voice Update March 2019

Pupil Voice representatives have started to use ‘wee HGIOS’ to help evaluate Dalkeith High School and identify improvements for our school.

We all agreed to focus on Theme 2 “Our Learning and Teaching” as we felt it was important to reflect upon and get wider responses on the curriculum, learning experiences, reporting and feedback.

First of all, we looked at the examples of highly effective practice in the booklet.  We all agreed that there is a lot of areas which Dalkeith High School is already very good at but there are also areas which we think should be developed and improved.

When we were planning our recent Pupil Voice meeting, we decided to use the questions in the booklet as a starting point to help get honest feedback.

Our next steps will be to carry out learning walks with SLT to observe learning across the school.  We also want to carryout department and whole school evaluations where we look at wall displays, digital resources, outdoor facilities and the layout of classrooms to help us collect further information about our school which we will use to help make future improvements.
