Highbury Primary School

Citizenship Award

We use our school values to promote positive attitudes to learning and developing a growth mindset for all. These reflect the skills and attitudes needed to promote responsibility for learning and future success. The children will be able to explain about the need to be respectful, resilient, confident, kind, inclusive and aspirational and how these help them as life-long learners.

They will;

  • Have developed a strong sense of identity within the school and belonging to the community
  • Have the confidence and skills to make decisions
  • Have aspirations to achieve with a growth mind set
  • Have the skills to self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners
  • Be able to keep themselves safe
  • Be able to transfer to secondary school as an independent learner
  • Continue to contribute to the wider society and be a responsible citizen who is tolerant and respectful of others’ values and beliefs

Our aim is for the children to leave Highbury Primary School with a sense of belonging to a tightly knit community. They have the confidence, aspirations, understand their choices in life and the difference they can make as a global citizen.

In each year group from Nursery to Year 6, every child has a Citizenship passport. The progression of activities in each year group will help develop the children's skills, knowledge and experience whilst embedding the core values of Respect, Resilience, Confidence, Kindness, Inclusive and Aspiration.
