Investing in Children Award

posted 11 Feb 2016, 06:15 by Simon Bush
We are proud to let you know that the school has once again been recognised and awarded the Investing in Children Award.

Investing in Children (IiC) is a UK initiative that promotes the human rights of children and young people. Over the last 17 years, IiC has developed a range of different ways in which children and young people are supported to say what they want to say, and help to improve services used by them, by discussing their ideas with the adults who run the services.

One of the ways we do this is through the IiC Membership Award™ Scheme.

The Investing in Children Membership Award™ Scheme recognises and celebrates examples of imaginative and inclusive practice with children and young people. Organisations applying for the award have to demonstrate dialogue with young people which leads to change. However, children and young people have to provide the evidence for the organisation and endorse the membership report because it is a children’s and young people’s award.

There are currently over 500 members across the UK
