Manchester has a long history of community involvement. We feel that children need to respect and understand their immediate community and its resources. Children gain a greater sense of their own identity if they can feel a belonging and connection to their immediate family and community. This is especially important in an increasingly global world where children need to understand where they belong and how they can positively impact on their world.
It is important that children see the connections between school, their families and the local and extended community to better recognise not only their place in the world but also to have a context for their learning.
