Home School Info Our Christian Values Courageous Advocacy

Courageous Advocacy

We encourage and support our pupils to be "Courageous Advocates". This means we champion causes which are special and meaningful. These may be global issues or matters far more personal and closer to home.

Courageous advocacy develops: resilience, teamwork, courage and independence and an understanding of the wider world. We understand that life can be difficult at times and that all people, including friends, family and global citizens will face worries that they need help to persevere with in order to overcome them. We want our pupils to help make the world a better place, enabling them to flourish. Themes we reflect upon include:

  • Democracy
  • Holocaust Memorial Day
  • Zero Discrimination Day
  • National Storytelling Week
  • Equality
  • International Women’s Day
  • Lent
  • Five ways to wellbeing

We have a long tradition of supporting charities at St Egwin’s which upholds our Christian Values of Love, Respect and Endeavour. We aim to inspire Courageous Advocacy and instil our Christian Values in our community. This includes participating in, as well as organising, fundraising to benefit a wide range of causes locally, nationally and globally. We want our young people to stand up for what they believe in and to challenge injustice to bring about change.

Some of the charities we support include:

  • Mr Pullan’s Headteacher’s charity: London Marathon 2021 supporting Children with Cancer UK.
  • St Richard’s Hospice
  • Talk to Footsteps
  • Midlands Air Ambulance
  • Comic Relief
  • Children in Need
  • The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal
  • Food Donations to the local foodbank

St Egwin’s pupils care about the environment. As part of a Christian Aid activity done in RE, Year 7s took part in ‘Letters for Creation.’ Their work may be included in an exhibition being put on by the Church of England when world leaders come to Glasgow for COP26.  We have also sent copies to the local MP to reinforce how young people feel about the environment.


Here's a lovely article showing the hard work & values of St Egwin's students.

Black History Month

We marked Black History Month by telling the stories of Marcus Rashford and Walter Tull. Pupils can now borrow a copy of Marcus Rashford's book from the library.
