This year the school has begun participating in the Global Neighbours initiative run by Christian Aid. This will be taking over from the Rights Respecting School, which the school has followed for many years. As well as the recognition attached to gaining accreditation status, the scheme will also help schools fulfill the Church of England’s vision of education that is deeply Christian and serving the common good. It will also help children claim their voice as global citizens.
The children will benefit by knowing that, as a church school, we do these things because Jesus asked us to ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’. They will understand that it is our responsibility as global citizens, to look after the world and all the people in our world no matter of their colour or religion.
