Walworth Primary School Year 5 & 6 children are participating in The Prince William Award this academic year. This programme is designed to help children develop the confidence, resilience and inner strength to ‘dare to be their best self’.
SkillForce is a national education charity, employing predominantly ex-servicemen and woman to deliver The Prince William Award in schools. HRH, Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge is the royal patron. A SkillForce instructor will be coming into school once per week to run a series of workshops, sessions and projects that will encourage your child to understand and reflect on the importance of key character traits like resilience, self-belief, team-work and confidence.
This is achieved through your child taking part in interactive games and activities, community projects and reflective learning, all of which follow a scheme of work that has been developed and evaluated by some of the country’s top universities and educationalists.
At the end of the programme, if your child has developed the qualities that underpin The Prince William Award, they will achieve the prestigious certificate and badge at a graduation ceremony. We expect that your child will improve their character and resilience to enhance attitudes to learning.
