Ravenstone Primary School

Community Spirit

Community Spirit – 2018

Ravenstone's community spirit is a program built into key stage two where children will apply for and take up key roles and responsibilities across the school. Teachers and staff will organise these roles and allocate time each week for children to take part in good deeds or opportunities to do good and help others around the school.

Alongside developing our core values the aim for the community spirit is to develop children confidence, articulation, independence, responsibility, understanding of being 'business minded' and to think about the bigger picture while challenging themselves as individuals and as a group.

Our current Community Spirit roles and their job descriptions are as followed;
