Community Award

The College launched the Co-operative Community Award programme this year. It gives KS3 and KS4 students opportunities to demonstrate, and to be publicly acknowledged for, activities they lead or take part in which practically demonstrate an understanding of the co-operative values. Students can use experiences from both within the College as well as the local community; which include volunteering, skill-sharing, supporting staff and students, taking part in events, inspiring other students to lead healthier lifestyles and raising funds for local and international charities.

There are four levels: Bronze and Silver list the same examples of activities but for both you must choose three differing values to work within. Here is an example:

Solidarity

You can develop solidarity throughout the College or wider community by:

  • supporting new students as part of the Transition process
  • sharing your experiences, skills or interests with others in a tutor time activity or presentation
  • being part of  a club, team or society, including sports teams, HMS Heroes and all College clubs
  • being part of a music, drama or dance production, either on or backstage
  • developing practical links between the College and other schools or community groups across the world
  • supporting a Year 12 Head of House

Silver and Platinum levels encourage students to work more independently and demonstrate a higher level of leadership. For example:

Solidarity

You can develop solidarity throughout the College or wider community by:

  • designing and leading a lunchtime or after College activity which enables others to feel part of the College community
  • sharing your experiences, skills or interests with others in assemblies for each year group or a presentation to members of the College and public
  • having a lead performance or management role within a music, drama or dance production in College, a local primary school or the wider community
  • creating and maintaining active links between the College and other schools or community groups across the world
  • leading a House

As well as gaining important life experiences, students gain CV Points and a certificate when they complete each level.
