What is Sefton Children's University?

Sefton Children's University recognises and rewards children's voluntary participation in learning activities and experiences outside the normal school curriculum.


How does it work?

Here at Holy Family we are delighted that so many of our staff give up their time to run clubs and we are proud to offer a variety of activities for different year groups.

Children attending activities within school will gain credits which they can bank in order to graduate.

1 credit is awarded for each hour of attendance. Children can gain a maximum of 10 credits per term on each activity.

Children will be issued with a Children's University passport to collect credits outside school at other learning destinations.

Children who gain sufficient credits by the end of a Key Stage (end of Year 6 or Year 2) will be invited to graduate from Sefton Children's University at a special ceremony held at a local university.



Attendance at Sefton Children's University activities is voluntary and as such children must commit to attend regularly in order to gain credits. Credits are awarded for attendance, not for achievement or performance.
