The KS1 Award is a fully resourced leadership, character education and personal development programme, where pupils consider their own skills, the needs of their local community and build habits of helping others.
Explore the topics of kindness, perseverance, teamwork and action through interactive activities and challenges. Follow Gracie’s story as she learns to be a leader.
For our English schools, the Award has strong links to SMSC, British Values, PSHE, Character Education, Citizenship, RE and SIAMS.
For our Welsh schools, the Award has strong links to the four purposes, fostering cynefin and developing important life skills. It contributes to areas of learning and experience in the RVE and RSE curriculums.
The Award is available to purchase in group box sizes of small 15 learners (£180+ VAT), 25 learners (£300 +VAT), and 35 learners (£420 +VAT). These can be purchased in different combinations to meet your learner needs and includes a Young Leaders Passport book and set of stickers for each learner. It also includes your license for the year to our online platform with all the teaching and learning materials and training and support for participating teachers. Individual certificates will also be sent out on completion.
Pupils were inspired to help their local Foodbank after learning about its increased need at Christmas. They organised a ‘Christmas Fun Day’ for their school where pupils brought in donations for Christmas hampers for the Foodbank and were overwhelmed with donations creating almost 50 hampers!
" The children are far more aware of how they can help others on a large scale through supporting charities and on a small scale with everyday small acts of kindness. Through the Award, foundations have been laid to make compassionate citizens of the future. "
