Courageous Advocacy is a phrase that refers to the way in which we help our pupils to make a positive impact in their communities for the better. At Stretton Sugwas, this is integral to how we live out our vision. The "bee"have bee is the outward action of the nurturing of gifts, talents and skills - both individually and as part of a team.
For more information, our Courageous Advocacy policy can be viewed on the Policies page.
The School Council at Stretton Sugwas is extremely pro-active. It has been involved in many decisions affecting school life and is the voice of the children. The School Council even has its own Twitter feed that is monitored by the teachers. The Tweets are from the children and are their own views. In order to help the children bring about effective change, they need to be heard and what better way?
The children created their own Social Action group to help engage in the community and make a positive impact for the future. We believe that Social Action is the natural end-point for our learning, allowing essential opportunities for pupils to see the purpose of their learning by applying it to a meaningful context.
As a school, we regularly give to different charities. Often, these may be of special significance due to causes that are close to the children and their families. Increasingly, we are trying to use our charity work as a way of raising awareness of specific needs or causes within our community.
