Children at St Peter's Church of England Primary School have the opportunity to undertake the Young Leaders Award.


Young people have the power to change the world.
We’re passionate about empowering Young Leaders to transform
society and to inspire others to do the same.

The Young Leaders Award (YLA) is a leadership and character education programme designed to be delivered by teaching staff within the classroom.


St Peter's children will:


  • Explore the concept of leadership
  • Investigate the stories and impact of great leaders in society
  • Consider the importance of serving others
  • Examine how to bring transformation to communities
  • Take action to ‘be the change you want to see’

On Friday 18th November we launched our Young Leaders Award Programme which we are very excited about.

Key Stage 1 children have been given a special passport and have been learning all about the importance of kindness and the positive impact it can have. The children have been talking about random acts of kindness and coming up with ideas on how they can show kindness in school, at home and within the community. Please let us know if your children show you any random acts of kindness at home. In Key stage 2 they have been looking at the qualities needed to be a good leader and have been thinking about their own character traits. Over the next few weeks they will be learning more about inspirational leaders who have made big changes in the world. They have been given a special scrap book to record all of their work.

The children are going to be working on the award every Wednesday so please ask your child what they have been getting up to.
