Arch Bishop of York Young Leaders Award


Newington Church of England Primary School supports our whole village community by providing rich and creative learning opportunities so people may realise the God-Given gifts within them, encouraging kindness, forgiveness and a generous heart.

We instill self-worth and values through love, support and experiential learning so that everyone will be equipped to embrace life in all its fullness.

As a welcoming school we firmly believe in working in partnership with our families to ensure all children have a window to the world. Like Jesus and Nathanael, everyone at Newington CEP will have time to reflect on their experiences and be empowered to step through doors so they flourish in life.



We believe every young person is unique, of great worth, and has the potential to change our communities for the better. We exist to empower young people to serve their generation, putting the needs of others before themselves.

Our school funds the award so pupils in Year 5 may take part and achieve the Arch Bishop of York’s Young Leaders Award.

Each year, the Year 5 class teacher works with the class to plan a project of their choice which runs through the whole year. These have previously involved caring for the environment and the sharing of happiness.

At the end of the year, the children and the school are awarded certificates for their achievements.
