Courageous Advocacy At Newbold Church School
The distinct aims and Christian values of Newbold Church School underpin every aspect of school life.
Encourage one another and build up each other, as indeed you are doing
1 Thessalonians 5:11
Jesus said "Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you should also love one another."
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up
We embrace the Church of England’s vision for education, one that is, ‘deeply Christian, serving the common good’, encompasses the whole of humanity and its context advocating for the widening of horizons and the promotion of human wellbeing for all.
‘We are only persons with each other: our humanity is “co-humanity”, inextricably involved with others, utterly relational, both in our humanity and our shared life on a finite planet. If those others are of ultimate worth, then we are each called to responsibility towards them and to contribute responsibly to our communities.’ Church of England Vision for Education, 2016
Newbold Church School is dedicated to fostering a love of learning and an enthusiasm for joining in with all aspects of school and community life. We are committed to giving all pupils equal opportunities and discrimination is not tolerated. Our aims, values, vison and curriculum encourages greater involvement in environmental issues and an understanding of complex interdependencies in the global community.
We are courageous advocates; all year groups have a global goal focus. We are committed to developing citizenship in preparation for life within the local, national and global communities The British Values and our Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural development form an integral part of our vision, values and curriculum.
To have a secure understanding of what courageous advocacy is, our Collective Worship takes time to focus on a courageous advocate from across the globe, both past and present, that have faced injustice and have had to overcome barriers in order to help others for the greater good.
During Collective worship we aim to inspire our pupils to engage in social action and to be courageous advocates for change in the local, national and global community.
We develop understanding of what courageous advocacy is by introducing courageous advocates across the globe, both past and present, that have faced injustice and overcome barriers in order to help others for the greater good.
We link these courageous advocates to our School Values and we celebrate pupils from across our school who have displayed associated behaviours and attitudes. The nominated pupils are added to our Courageous Advocate display.
