Christian Aid - Global Neighbours

We are so proud that we achieved the Bronze Global Neighbours Award. We agree with Christian Aid that ‘schools provide a much-needed safe space in which children can begin to make sense of the world they are encountering’ and that social global citizenship and courageous advocacy:

Broadens the horizons of the mind

Provides real-life contexts for learning and opportunities for pupils to explore topical issues

Cultivates the essential skills and values (from empathy to self-awareness and respect for all people) that prepare pupils for living well with their fellow human beings

Contributes to improved outcomes across the curriculum and in pupils’ personal development, through enhanced skills in critical and creative thinking, reasoning and communication.

We all believe in the important work we do promoting social action as a key fundamental value of our school as it ‘draws on Christian perspectives that contribute to the development of pupils (and staff) as ‘dreamers’, able to employ new energies to change our society, grounded in honesty, hope and love’.
