Engineering Student Views

Children and young people can offer unique perspectives on what it is like to be a student at their school. At Boldon School, we value the views of our students, involving them in decision-making, helping to shape our curriculum, as well as facilitating a sense of empowerment and inclusion.

We have a whole-school commitment to listening to the views, wishes and experiences of all children and young people. It means placing value on what children and young people tell school staff about their experiences. This is of particular importance across each subject area. We try to promote meaningful opportunities to share their experiences, views and hopes about their school. To build a safe environment, better relationships across the whole school community and empower students with the knowledge that what they say is valued and will be listened to and considered.

We are proud to hear their views about our curriculum, teachers and the learning environment we create:

I like Engineering because you can do and learn things you thought you couldn’t. I have especially enjoyed the CAD/CAM project.

Year 9

I like learning about materials and manufacturing methods that are new and interesting. Taking products apart is fun and a good way to see how a product is manufactured.

Engineering has taught me to be independent with my work. It has allowed me to be creative and express myself while allowing me to solve problems.
