Why School Radio?

Do you have a creative innovative school with students that are eager to learn new and exciting ways of communicating? Do your students want to create talk shows, radio drama, book reports and discuss issues that matter to them in a non-confrontational format?
Do you want to create a promotional drive to celebrate your school’s achievements and news, broadcasting in real time, to your school, families and the community?
“Whether it is discussing important issues or sharing the music they love, radio gives your students a voice within their school”

Why Choose School Radio:

Benefits of School Radio

Inclusion – A School Radio station run by the students and for the students will help build an inclusive atmosphere in the school. Radio is all about communication and running a radio show takes commitment and teamwork in order for it to be a success. Our systems are easy enough to use that all students, regardless of age or ability can get involved.
Building Confidence – Most people find talking to a ‘mic’ in a closed room far less intimidating than appearing on camera or on stage. This allows students to express their views and build their confidence whether it is discussing important issues or sharing ideas, radio gives your students a confident voice within your school.
 
Develop Speaking & Listening Skills – Radio is about speaking and listening. Whether you are presenting or just listening to a show, these vital skills are not only fundamental in radio but are essential for ‘real world’ skills
Improving Literacy – Seems strange to be talking about writing skills in radio but the first time a student looks at the ‘mic’ and then asks what they should say, they realise they need to write scripts and prepare between links. Extend this preparation for talk shows, radio drama or telephone interviews and it is clear that writing plays a big role in radio and extends to meeting the National Curriculum in many ways.
National Curriculum – School Radio helps schools and academies to supplement learning and meet the National Curriculum in ways that you may not even realise. It’s also a great way to keep staff, student and parents/guardians alike updated with school life. Have a look at our summary page and see a few examples.
Giving Students A Voice and Empowerment- School Radio offers a platform for your students to discuss the issues that matter to them in a non-confrontational format. Whether it is discussing important issues or sharing the music they love, radio gives your students a voice within your school.
Teamwork – Planning and presenting radio shows requires a great deal of teamwork. Many schools run their School Radio station like a ‘real’ station assigning roles and responsibilities for presenters, engineers and station management.  See our free resources pages to download packs to work on projects as a team.
