The First Thrive Student Congress celebrating Lundy Model Pupil Agency Case Studies

We have had an unbelievable morning with young people from our nine schools celebrating case studies of Pupil Agency work they have been doing this year. Representatives from Chiltern, Ings, Oldfleet, Priory, Sidmouth, St. George's & Stepney Primary Schools plus our two secondary schools: Kelvin Hall & Newland School for Girls, gave detailed presentations of their work, all based around the Lundy Model of Child Participation. The presentations ranged from lunchtime roles and responsibilities, uniform changes, cultural days to reducing plastic usage, tuck trolleys, bicycle sheds, Pokemon cards and bird houses. In each presentation, the students had organised their case studies into the four Lundy model domains of Space, Voice, Audience & Influence. They will be sharing these presentations with their school populations to reinforce how we in Thrive consider their voice and influence to be of paramount importance to us. Having introduced this at the start of 2022, we have been on an incredible journey which is going from strength to strength. Many special thanks go to Professor Lundy herself for her support and to Mr Leng and his staff for hosting this special event at Kelvin Hall School. We were also delighted that Germaine, who was one of the presenters today, is the Hull Deputy Young Mayor and flies the flag of pupil agency with the Hull Youth Parliament.
