Courageous Advocacy (Archbishop of York Award)

What is a courageous advocate?

A courageous advocate is someone who champions a cause which is special and meaningful to them.

At Dawpool Church of England Primary School we have a strong emphasis on encouraging our pupils to become courageous advocates, not just locally, but nationally and globally.

Pupils in Key Stage Two (KS2) participate in the Archbishop of York Young Leaders Award.

The KS2 Award is a character education programme where pupils have practical opportunities to volunteer and help others in their community.

There are 3 key aims:

  •       To build pupils leadership skills and character
  •       To grow pupils’ confidence, teamwork, resilience and care for others
  •       To empower pupils to serve their communities

These aims are achieved through delivering 6 topics across the school year

Leadership Skills: How we use them to change the world.

Inspirational Leaders: People who changed the world for the better.

Local Community: Identifying needs in your area.

National Community: Researching charities and bringing about change.

Global Community: Exploring issues of justice across the world.

Community Action: Running a class project.
