Student Agency

Student agency refers to the level of autonomy and power that a student experiences in the learning environment. Student voice and agency are intrinsically linked. Agency gives students the power to direct and take responsibility for their learning, creating independent and self-regulating learners.


At MWPS we encourage students to:

  • work with teachers in making decisions about teaching and learning
  • take responsibility for their learning and are, on the whole, independent and self-regulating learners
  • negotiate and design learning that stretches their thinking
  • can track and measure their own learning growth
  • are involved in designing and implementing school policy and programs, and actively
  • contribute ideas about student-led learning
  • display the capabilities, confidence and willingness to contribute ideas and make
  • decisions about what and how they learn
  • reflect, take-action and accept the responsibility that comes with being part of the problem solving.
