Representatives from each KS2 class will be appointed after an application process to help make decisions alongside the teachers to:
• embrace differences and promote inclusion
• engage in active global and local citizenship
• promote positive relationships with others
The Rainbow Council recruits children who are committed, hardworking and reflective. Rainbow Council Ambassadors will need to be able to demonstrate our six core Christian values at all times and encourage others to follow these values in their own lives.
The aims of the Rainbow Council are to:
• Ensure that our core Christian values of Love, Friendship, Compassion, Community, Trust and Forgiveness are upheld by every member of our school community
• To be ambassadors for these Christian values
• To be courageous advocates for change, with a strong sense of social action
• Provide a link between pupils, teachers, senior management team, governors and the whole school community
All our representatives proudly wear their red badges to make them clearly identifiable around school. Pupils will be helped every step of the way with their role and new councilors will be appointed each academic year.
Our new Rainbow Council are proudly wearing their new red badges!
Our Core Christian Values
On 9th May 2022, we held Well-Being Week. Members of the Rainbow Council and the Sport and Well-Being Council delivered a special assembly. We launched a competition and held several events throughout the week: Growth Mindset Monday Trusting Tuesday
Our Harvest collection for the Trinity Foodbank in Radcliffe. Our families were so generous that it took two trips to take all the food.
Year 5/6 learnt about Alan Turing in their PSHE lessons during LGBTQ+ month. He is our chosen advocate due to the significant impact he had in the past. Did you know that he was a great mathematician and computer scientist?
We held an assembly about Sir Ian McKellen. Did you know that he co-founded the charity Stonewall in 1989. Stonewall still campaigns for LGBTQ+ equality, running a recent campaign to stop homophobic bullying in schools.
KS1 have been learning about Rosa Parks who was an American activist in the civil rights movement. She is our chosen advocate because she had the courage to stand up and challenge social injustice.
During our assembly, we considered the significant impact that Dr Martin Luther King had on the world. We reflected on how we can use our voices to make a positive impact.
Greta Thunberg is a Swedish environmental activist who challenged world leaders to take immediate action for climate change. She is our chosen courageous advocate as she reminds us that no matter your age, you can stand up for change.
Our display demonstrates the importance of challenging discrimination, racism and hatred. Our courageous advocates inspire change in the world and we reflect on the changes that we can make.
February is the LGBTQ+ History Month. As a way of helping the children understand and embrace the rich diversity of the world that they live in, we will learn about the LGBTQ+ community.
For Holocaust Memorial Day, we held an assembly to remember the people of the Jewish faith that were persecuted during the Holocaust. We reflected on how we can be the light in the darkness.
Our Rainbow Council planned and led our Monday assembly. Their big question was ‘What is Ramadan?’ #love #community
Our School council met artist Lee Crocker at Bury Art Museum #Spirit of Radcliffe Project
We discussed how people and buildings can inspire artwork #Spirit of Radcliffe Project
