As part of the excellent Christian education we offer our pupils at St. Andrew’s, we aim to give our pupils the opportunity to engage in social action and help them to understand how they can challenge injustice. This is called ‘courageous advocacy’. When we use the term ‘courageous advocacy’ we are referring to the act of speaking out against an issue of injustice, often on behalf of those whose voice is not heard. Speaking out, at whatever level this takes place, requires an element (and sometimes a great deal) of courage!
Some ways we do this is to encourage our children in supporting a child in NIger through World Vision and our links with the Medic Malawi ( previously St Peter's Education Trust) Malawi.
In addition, we several groups of children who have taken it upon themselves to raise funds for other great causes such Cancer Research and the British Heart Foundation.
Year 5 took part in an event with other schools to teach other young children about the importance of online safety.
