Student Voice

We are a Champion for the Dorset Sustainable Palm Oil Community

We at St Osmunds’ CE Middle School are committed to participate in the Dorset Sustainable Palm Oil Community project.

We have worked with our suppliers to ensure that where palm oil is present in our food it is from sustainable sources. We are currently auditing our resources in art and science to identify current usage and identify alternative products to remedy this. 

By doing so, we know that we are fighting climate change and also helping to protect wildlife around the world from the impact of unsustainable agricultural practices.

Student voice is integral to the daily operations of the school. St Osmund’s promotes student led development across all areas of school life. Each half term, different individuals from every form group, incorporating all year groups, meet with Mr Mitchell to discuss agenda items that are relevant and drive school improvement. The student voice re-designed our student code of conduct, developed strategies to embed our value of Hope across the school, and supported the re-structure of our achievement point/behaviour point/homework point system. Each student voice forum will see different pupils come to share their thoughts; all students at St Osmund’s have the right to feel safe and that their voice is heard.
