We have been supporting the Send My Friend To School campaign in the UK. It is about persuading the UK government to sign the Safe Schools Declaration to support all children being able to go to school safely by 2030. We learned about the barriers to education and how we can make schools safe. Every learner in KS1 and KS2 made a Safer Schools poster to support this campaign.
We asked our local MP Mark Prisk to visit our school and share what we have learned. After a school tour, he talked about gender equality to our year 4's who have been learning about this global goal last term. During an assembly the children then asked him about local and world issues. The questions were expertly asked and generated interesting answers. Lastly, he met our school council and discussed their role.
The Send My Friend to School campaign has been very successful and Mark said that the UK has now signed the declaration to support helping children to be able to go to school safely by 2030! Well done to everyone who made a difference through this important initiative!
