Building Global Awareness & Responsibility: Developing Children as Future Citizens
At Mead Road Infant School, we believe that even the youngest of children can rise to the challenge when given roles of responsibility, and that doing so helps them appreciate the powerful role that they can play in being active citizens, affecting change and helping others. We believe that by providing leadership roles to children they learn first-hand to care about their school and community, and the people within it, whilst preparing them for life as future citizens. As a result, we provide all our Yr. 2 children (and some of our Yr. 1 children) with a special leadership role of responsibility during their final year with us: a role which they apply for and work hard to prepare for. The leadership roles on offer this year are, School Council, Eco Council, Play Pals, Buddies and Junior Librarians. With the support of lead adults in school, children carry out their leadership role throughout the year, and in so doing directly develop their knowledge, confidence, self-esteem, communication skills, social skills and empathy, whilst also learning more about rights, responsibilities and our British Values.
