The KS2 Award is a fully resourced leadership, character education and personal development programme, where pupils develop core skills and have practical opportunities to volunteer and help others in their community.
Join Archie as he discovers that he can ‘be the change he wants to see’ in his community. Explore what it means to be a leader, investigate inspirational leaders and their impact, identify actions within the local, national and global communities. Take action.
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 Scrapbook, pencil, and Archie pin badge 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.
Interactive and engaging activities include animated videos, big discussion questions, a community walk and creative challenges to serve others.
After watching footage of otters caught in plastic litter in their local river, Year 6 pupils organised a river clean up project. They spent the day clearing over 20 bin bags of litter from the river and surrounding areas together with parents and members of their local community who came to join in.
"‘The children used brilliant planning and organisational skills to get the project sorted. They developed independence of thought and have made a real difference to their local community."
