Value of the Month

-Citizenship-

This value links exceptionally well to our ‘Golden Thread’ that intends to empower our children to be upstanders and activists. Citizenship recognises that we are all citizens of one world and that we are rooted in equality, justice and diversity. The History curriculum at Coldfall enables them to learn about people such as Rosa Parks, David Attenborough – both of whom share the courage to try and change the world for the better.

When watching the news at the moment the world can appear a frightening place to children – climate change, inequality, war. It is important for them to recognise and know that they can follow the example of the afore-mentioned role models and affect positive change in their world.
