Children's University comes to Gateford Park
We are thrilled to announce that Children's University is coming to Gateford Park!
Children's University is run by the Children's University Trust. It operates through more than 80 local centres, with our centre being at Nottingham Trent University. It is an excellent way to give recognition to the children for all of the super extra-curricular activities they take part in, both at school and at home.
All of our children in the current Y2, Y3, Y4 and Y5 will be enrolled at the Children's University. The children will use their Passports To Learning in which they record the number of hours of completed CU validated learning activities. There are hundreds! Children are encouraged to progress through the national certification scheme, based on the number of hours of attendance throughout their involvement with the Children's University. Bronze, silver and gold certificates are awarded at CU Undergraduate, CU Postgraduate and CU Doctorate levels, with an exciting graduation ceremony at Nottingham Trent University, complete with a cap and gown.
More information will come home soon. We hope that Children's University will be a brilliant success at Gateford Park!
