We encourage the children to be proud members of their community. We encourage the children to see charity as giving something of themselves in service not simply as fundraising or collecting money.
We encourage the children to contribute to the various communities in which they live. This includes home, school, the local area and their wider world.
When children have completed tasks under each community standard they are awarded their Community Champion badge.
Helping at home – this could be feeding family pets, helping with age appropriate chores such as making beds, laying/clearing the table, reading a younger sibling a bedtime story, gardening…
Helping at school – this could be taking on a role or responsibility such as librarian, Eco Council member, litter picking, setting up for assemblies, supporting children new to school…
Helping in the local community – this could be representing the school at sports fixtures, singing in the choir at a local care home, supporting local charities such as the FoodBank, litter picking…
Helping the wider world – this could be selling poppies for remembrance day, promoting international charities such as World Down Syndrome Day, championing the Eco agenda…
Our Community Champions at work
We encourage the children to see charity as giving something of themselves in service not simply as fundraising or collecting money.
Our children visited the local FoodBank and then organised their friends to set up our own.
We encourage the children to be proud of both their town and school community by representing their school at sports fixtures/events.
We encourage the children to support the vulnerable members of all ages within their local community. Our school choir visited local care homes to sing for the elderly residents.
We encourage the children to recognise help can be needed by anyone at any time. The children ran a pre-loved book and toy sale before Christmas to support recycling to protect the planet and to support their families in reducing costs at Christmas.
Our Year 2 children sign up for a Poppy selling rota to support Remembrance Day.
Our children care about their local environment and ensure it is litter free for the enjoyment of local residents.
