The Student Senate


Why do we need a student senate?

Mansfield had a turn out of 26% at the last election.

What do our students know about politics?

Video of students


Our students have a right to voice their opinion and to be heard.

We need them to support us and take ownership of the Academy

67% of students think staff only listen to them




What do our students want to change?

Changing the uniform to blazers.


Time in between lessons so it is easier to get to them on time / less late marks.


So we don’t have to carry our bags around which will increase shoulder / back injury.

Nicer toilet facilities

They are disgusting.

A bigger library.


- Better lunches that fill you up.

Make the café doors wider so you don’t get squashed.

Sports facilities.



Student Senate

Strand Senate

The most prestigious position in the senate. These students will represent the Academy at high profile events. They will work alongside the recruitment process. They will deliver strand assemblies and discuss issues in staff briefing and CPD sessions. They will be trained in public speaking.

These students will attend senate meetings and hold debates. They will arrange drop in sessions to discuss whole school student concerns. They will support the literacy drive and E9 activities.

These students will attend senate meetings. They will hold strand specific drop in sessions. They will raise strand issues with the senate e.g. strand facilities, homework, trips, learning challenges etc.
