A great accolade from the Parliament’s Education Service
Congratulations to Mr Bate and everyone involved in promoting the politics aspect of Learning for Life in the curriculum at BCHS. Parliament’s Education Service have accredited the work school does on political engagement by young people, through events such as the British Youth Council’s ‘Make Your mark’ vote, and our trips to the House of Commons. We have been accredited as Gold Level school!
On a personal note, Mr Bate is now a UK Parliament Teacher Ambassador at Gold Level and has been invited to help train the next cohort of Teacher Ambassadors. A fantastic achievement for him but also for us in having him as part of Team BIRCHwood.
Mr Bate said “ This is fantastic for the school as I will be looking for further ways to engage our young people in politics and allow them to have their say, it really is nonsense that young people are not interested in politics”
