Year 11 Speak at Education Policy Institute

Last half term, three of Harris Academy Peckham's Year 11 students, Tegan, Islam, and Prince, were invited to speak to the Education Policy Institute (EPI) about the government's deliberations about how Year 11 students were going to be assessed for their GCSEs.

During the interview, the three students, along with Year 11 and Year 13 students from other Harris academies, were asked about their thoughts and feelings about the government's decision to change GCSE examinations this academic year, due to COVID-19.

All three gave passionate, insightful and engaging comments. Natalie Perrera, Chief Executive of the EPI, said: "They were incredibly articulate and engaging - I really enjoyed the discussion. Their views were refreshing and will be very helpful to us in thinking about how we can support policy-making on this important issue of grades this summer."

Their views were refreshing and will be very helpful.

What students said...


Reflecting on the interview, Year 11 student Prince said: "It was a pleasure being able to express my thoughts in this matter as I believe that our voices as students should hold significant weight during the decision making as we students are going to be affected the most by the outcome." 


Tegan felt heard during the interview about the issues students are facing, and said: “It was phenomenal being able to address many problems that have remained unspoken of when it comes to how students are being assessed this year. I truly felt that we were heard. I am now quite optimistic of what the near future may hold.” 


Islam was pleased that his opinions had been taken into consideration, and said: “It was a pleasure to be able to voice my opinion on the matter of how grades are being decided, as most issues concerning our future are not decided with our point of view taken into consideration.”

The Education Policy Institute is a think tank that aims to raise standards in education through rigorous data analysis, research and the exchange of information and knowledge to help inform the public and hold government and decision-makers to account.
