Courageous Advocacy

"Together in faith we LEARN, we CARE, we SERVE, we SHARE"

‘Serve one another with love’ – Galatians 5:13

At St Elphin’s we embrace the Church of England’s vision for education, one that is, ‘deeply Christian, serving the common good of the whole community’. At some point in life we will all face challenges and need support to help us overcome these barriers. At St Elphin’s we teach our children that it is important to help others no matter who they are, where they come from or what challenges they may face. We teach this through the teachings of the bible and learning about other courageous advocates. We encourage our children to be courageous advocates - to ‘take action’ on issues of injustice in the world.

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” - Proverbs 31:8-9

To have a secure understanding of what courageous advocacy is, each year group in the school learns about a courageous advocate from across the globe, both past and present, that have faced injustice and have had to overcome barriers in order to help others for the greater good.

As well as learning about courageous advocates in the public eye, each class develops their own ‘courageous advocacy project’. In the summer term, Year 3 performed songs to parents in the school hall to raise money for Warrington Food Bank.

We also fundraise to support charities throughout the year including Comic Relief, Children in Need, Cancer Research, Warrington Foodbank, Down Syndrome Day and The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
