Young Leader's Award

The Young Leader's Award is an citizenship programme which aims to empowers young

people to make a difference in their local community whilst growing in key leadership

skills at the same time. The award is run by The Archibishop of York Youth Trust and

it is a programme we are proud to have been participating in for the past 3 years. 

Last year, Key Stage 2 pupils opted to attend the 'Archie Bishop' club on a weekly basis. 

In this club they learnt about the importance of citizenship, the role Christians play in

supporting a global community and they plan their own project to improve an aspect

of their local community. The children opted to run a food bank in school to collect food

and supplies to donate to the Trussell Trust to support local families during the summer

holidays. The children advertised their food bank, set it up and delivered the food. 

This year we will be participating in the programme in both Key Stage One and Key

Stage Two, as well as continuing keeping the food bank running in school.
