Children’s University has been running for a number of years at out school and continues to grow and is very successful. Here is some more information about it.
What is it?
Children’s university is a national project which recognises the achievements of young people aged between 7 and 14 who take part in high quality learning activities out of normal school hours. The children collect hours in a passport for any extra-curricular activities in school. These include: clubs, residentials, homework and seasonal projects. You can also collect hours at Children’s University affiliated venues across the country. Please see the website: http://www.
How do you join?
Parents can collect a permission letter from the School Office to complete and sign to give permission for your child to receive a passport. You will also receive an online account.
How do you graduate?
You graduate by collecting one of the milestone hours. For the first award you need 30 hours (bronze), then 65 (silver) and 100 (gold). You can collect up to 1000 hours!
Where do you graduate?
You graduate in school twice/three times a year and parents/carers are invited to watch. Then in the summer there is a larger ceremony for lots of schools in Peterborough, last summer this was held at Peterborough Cathedral.
We currently have over 100 members in our school with over half of those graduating either last year or the year before.
Please see Miss Downs if you have any further questions.
