What is it?

Children's University is a national scheme to recognise learning that children complete out of lesson hours.

It is for children that are in Reception to Year 6 at school.

Children count up hours of learning that takes place in school clubs such as computer club and happy feet as well as activities that they might do outside of school such as Scouting or swimming lessons.

Only hours spent learning can be counted towards achieving an award. There are different levels of awards to recognise number of hours learning.

 

What awards can the children achieve?

Towards the end of the school year, the children visit a local university where there is a graduation ceremony for all the children who have participated and gained an award. Hours carry over from previous years so that the children can earn the higher awards.
