Earlham has become a part of the Children’s University.
The Children’s University (CU) is an international charity that provides children with access to exciting and innovative learning experiences outside of the normal school day.
How does it work? Your child will be given a learning passport and then be able to access high quality learnig activities which have been accredited by the CU, for example attend a workshop at the Natural History Museum.
Each time your child completes an accredited learning activity, they will get a stamp in their passport.
If your child currently attends a club outside of school e.g. karate, music lessons, drama, swimming etc. then please let Mrs Russell know and we can arrange for the CU to meet with the provider and potentially become an accredited learning destination where your child can collect their stamps.
Once your child has collected enough stamps they will be awarded with a Certificate of Achievement. The certificates are presented at a CU graduation ceremony.
What are the benefits for my child taking part? Your child will get to try new experiences, develop new interests and acquire new skills. They will be encouraged to become more inquisitive, confident, independent children and learners through participation in fun, high quality learning experiences. Membership to The Children's University™ will provide your child with access to a great range of high quality learning experiences. This will also be a great opportunity for you to support your child’s learning and celebrate in their success.
What is the cost? Parents will need to pay a contribution of £3. For this money your child will become a member of the CU, receive a learning passport and be able to attend the graduation ceremonies.
How can my child take part? We have a total of 100 Children's University places for Earlham pupils. If you are interested then please ask your childs class teacher (or Mrs Russell) for a Childrens University form, fill this out and return it to the school office. Places have been and will be given on a first come first served basis.
