“Serve one another humbly in love.”
‘Courageous advocacy’ involves being courageous enough to speak out against injustice. We encourage our pupils to come together to become informed about challenges that people across the world are facing and to tackle issues, support and educate other people, and to improve both their local community as well as helping to address global problems. We believe that learning and growing in a caring Christian environment will strengthen the values, principles and personal beliefs of our pupils, equipping them for living life in the 21st Century.
Charles Kingsley’s children live out the school’s Christian values by supporting local and regional charities. However, encouraging children to be courageous advocates goes much further than this and requires time to introduce them to the range of issues faced across the world, giving them the opportunities to raise awareness and help find solutions.
Courageous advocacy opportunities within school, whilst being responsive to issues that arise throughout the school year, are broadly mapped against our concept-led curriculum to ensure that children make meaningful links between their learning and social action.
The opportunity to earn a Heart of the Community (HOC) Award is given to every child and often involves the whole of their family getting involved in making a difference and serving their local or wider community. Through the inspiration created by Mrs Mills (a lollypop lady that served our community for many years) who is remembered and discussed at every HOC award ceremony, Children make a pledge to ‘make a difference'.
Do all the good you can.
By all the means you can.
In all the places you can.
At all the times you can.
To all the people you can.
As long as ever you can.
Picture News Impact Award
We are excited to have been awarded the GOLD Picture News Impact Award for our submission for our 2022-2023 Year 6 cohort.
"We reached this decision as we felt that your previous Year 6 children led their own project based on what they were passionate about. Their quality experiences of not only their beach clean, but finding out more about ocean health, with the help of The Final Straw Foundation, will help to provide long term commitment in all the children for reducing single use plastic. Well done for the impact you have made - you should be very proud!" - Picture News
