Social Responsibility

Social Responsibility


Each year the school adopts one overall charity focus for our giving. This year, the children have votedd to support Molly Olly's Wishes as they want to focus on supporting others in an effort to help them to live life in all its fulness. Last year the children raised over £500 for WFF, with each class adopting an animal from the money that they raised. Recent charities have included NSPCC, Myton Hospice, Cardiac Risk in the Young, The Guide Dogs and The Royal British Legion. As well as raising money for these, we also encourage pupils to respond to local, national and international appeals and have supported McGregor Ward (Warwick Hospital children's ward) by donating Easter eggs for children who are in hospital over Easter. Each October we also support the Leamington Churches' Food Bank for Harvest.

Pupils at BT School are encouraged to be socially responsible through the teaching of our Christian values. In the classroom, pupils understand the importance of showing RESPONSIBILITY and RESPECT to each other, but pupils are also taught about their wider opportunities as global citizens to work towards FAIRNESS and to show KINDNESS. Pupils who make an effort to show our values in their school day to day life are rewarded with 'value beads'. Just ask any of our children and they'll explain this.

Through the specific teaching of our Christian values, pupils are taught, for example, the importance of KINDNESS and HONESTY, learning to say (or text) only words that are true, kind and necessary. We also teach the importance of PEACE and FORGIVENESS in learning about and remembering those who suffered injury or died in recent conflicts or World Wars I and II.

In addition to this, our school celebrates Children in Need Day and Comic Relief fundraising, encouraging pupils to be thankful for all that we have in the UK and to take positive steps towards improving the lives of others at home and around the world.
