What is Global Neighbours?
Global Neighbours is an accreditation scheme set up by Christian Aid which schools nationally can take part in. The scheme develops and equips young people with the knowledge, skills and confidence to act against inequality and work towards a world free of poverty. It encourages children to be courageous advocates for change and to tackle social injustice within their local and wider communities.
One of our school Christian values is justice and we aim at St Luke's CE First School for all children to have an understanding of justice and what this means in their world and the wider world. Each year, we undertake projects which help to raise awareness of injustice both for humans and for animals.
We have achieved our Global Neighbours bronze award and will be working over the next three years to achieve our silver award.
We want our children to make informed choices and to become responsible, caring citizens. We empower children to be active global citizens; ensuring people have what is right and fair. As well as trusting god, we have qualities of determination , commitment and courage to put ourselves out for the benefit of others.
