What is the Children's University

Children’s University

Children’s University encourages children to continue their learning outside of the classroom.  Children can:

  1. Participate in Approved Community Learning Destinations (as listed below),  or complete Activity Challenges (see below).
  2. Encourage a Community Club they are already involved in to .  Take the form to your club to complete.  These forms can be printed from the attachment below or a paper copy is available from the school office.

Children’s Passport

Hours are earned from each activity carried out, and are logged in the children’s very own passport.

                                      PASSPORT                                               LOGGING HOURS

Earning and Stamping Hours

  • Children can earn as many hours as they want, completing whichever activities they choose. 
  • For ‘Community Club’ hours - please ask an adult from the club to sign their initials in the ‘Stamp of Approval’ column in the passport.
  • For ‘Activity Challenge’ hours – children should be ready to hand in their work on the last Friday of each month.  All work should be handed in to Mr Hazell.  There is no deadline.  The children work at their own pace. 
  • On the last Friday of each month, Mr Hazell will be available to put a stamp of approval in the children’s passports.  

Children’s University Award

All children have the chance to graduate and achieve one of three ‘Children’s University Awards’.

  • Bronze Award = 30 hours of Learning
  • Silver Award = 65 hours of Learning
  • Gold Award = 100 hours of Learning

Graduating

In the summer term a formal graduation event is held.  Parents are invited to watch the children proudly receive their ‘Children’s University Awards’.
