We are fast approaching Education for All

We are fast approaching Education for All Day with less than one month to go. I have continued my tour of UK schools, and it has been great to see the enthusiasm and interest school councils have for the project.

We were very pleased to be able to launch our short inspirational video ‘Turn on the Light’ at this year’s NUT conference in Liverpool. If you missed it you can find it at both http://www.stevesinnottfoundation.org.uk and http://www.educationforallday.org.

Hopefully you have now received the resource pack which has been sent out to participating schools. If you would like to sign up or download a resource pack then please go to our new schools website http://www.educationforallday.org.
I would love to include your school’s plans for Education for All Day. You can keep me posted by email at jasmine.jones@stevesinnottoundation.org.uk or simply complete the contact form on the website.
The number of schools joining the campaign is growing each week. These are just some of the schools to join in the past few weeks; Bredbury Grange Primary School, Blenheim Primary School, Cherry Hill Primary School Dore Primary School, St Peter’s RC Primary School, Whitehall Infants, King James’s School.

Early day motion 149 – EDUCATION FOR ALL DAY 2013 – UK Parliament

Early day motions (EDMs) are tabled by MPs to publicise a particular event or cause, and to gather support among MPs for that event or cause. MPs demonstrate their support for an EDM by signing the motion. Each EDM is given a unique number, our is 149!

 

Below is the outline and link of our Early Day Motion…

That this House welcomes the initiative by the Steve Sinnott Foundation to promote in UK schools an Education for All Day on 21 June 2013 drawing attention, through teaching and learning activities, to the United Nations Millennium Development Goal 2 of universal primary education for all by 2015; notes that with only two years to go before 2015, some 60 million children around the world are still out of school; further notes that the Foundation intends that the Education for All Day should become a feature of the school calendar in a growing number of schools in 2014, 2015 and beyond; and encourages school leaders to adopt the initiative with enthusiasm so as to provide pupils and students with greater understanding and awareness of the cause of education for all.
