A courageous advocate is someone who champions a cause which is special and meaningful to them.
At Finmere CE Primary School, we have a strong emphasis on encouraging our pupils to become courageous advocates, not just locally, but nationally and globally.
At some point in life we will all face challenges and need support to help us overcome these barriers. We teach our children that it is important to help others when we can, no matter who they are, where they come from or what challenges they may face. We teach this through the teachings of the bible and learning about other courageous advocates.
Our Christian values, and carefully planned opportunities in our curriculum, ensure that the children develop skills in order to challenge injustice and to engage in activities that can bring about change.
In recent years, we have carried out a range of different fundraising to support many good causes, some of which include:
- Children in Need
- Cancer Research
Our Courageous Advocate Team:
Our courageous advocates work together to drive change. Within our team of advocates, children from across the school take the roles of: house/vice captains and school council members.
Together, we consider the beauty and fragility of our environment, the actions we take, and the impact these actions may have on the wellbeing of everyone. Our school community and curriculum actively embraces a responsibility for the world in which we live. We are diligent to show our connection, and care for, the world in which we live and care for the people who live in it.
