Young Leaders Awards for Primary Schools

Archie Bishop
The Archbishop of York Youth Trust extended the ‘The Young Leaders Award’ for primary school children with a new character called ‘Archie Bishop’ who features as part of the resources.

The Young Leaders Award has been running at Key Stage 3 and 4 since 2011 and there are currently 49 schools with just under 7000 students completing the Awards.  Following the success of this Award, four York primary schools will be running the Key Stage 2 Award in the spring and summer terms in 2013.

Robin Rolls, Director of the Youth Trust said: “Archie Bishop is a brilliant central character with a story similar to many of the young people that the Youth Trust seeks to support.   The Young Leaders Award for Key Stage 2 pupils includes a DVD assembly of Archie B’s story and rap, six lesson packs, an interactive theme song, Youth Trust scrap books, pens, badges and certificates.  We’ve worked incredibly hard on these resources and are excited about the response we have received for this Award going into primary schools”.
