Courageous Advocacy

We encourage our pupils to develop compassion for our world and the people in it, through exploring issues of exploitation and injustice in an age appropriate way.   For example, after learning about the impact of plastic on the environment in their ‘Splash’ theme, Year 1/2 pupils wrote to a major supermarket chain with the aim of persuading them to stop using plastic milk bottles for their milk.   In year 5/6, as part of an RE unit, year 5&6 children discovered the work of ‘Accomplish Children’s Trust’ charity that operates in Africa.  After learning about a school for children with disabilities in a remote, poverty-stricken area of Uganda, they decided to raise money for the children.  They wrote persuasive letters encouraging the school community to take part in a non-uniform day.  In addition, they created and delivered assemblies across the KS1 classes to inform the younger children and inspire them to participate too.
