Help children to become aware of their responsibilities, duties and rights as potential citizens, incorporating a knowledge of democracy and justice, and respect for the rule of law.
Prepare them for the future, utilising ICT skills and the Internet to promote learning and communication.
Develop their potential to the full, emphasising social, moral and academic dimensions.
Support their development from dependent children to independent citizens.
Increase co-operation between schools and the police and promote good educational practice.
Stress the importance of the roles played by schools, parents, governors, religious groups, police, statutory and voluntary agencies, local and national government and business and industry.
Enable children to acquire and understand relevant information and provide them with opportunities to investigate and interact with many aspects of community life. By using ICT and the Internet, it will broaden the scope and base of the project, allow other interested parties to have an input into the scheme, and accelerate the transfer of information and data.
All lessons are selected as good examples of good practice and have been 'field tested' in schools by teachers, police officers and children.
Every primary school in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland is being invited to join in this project to share good practice and to contribute to the site. A panel of representatives from the core group of schools will be sifting through the submissions to share the best with other registered users.
This site is much more than children, police, teachers and the NSPCC working with the Internet and the WWW. It is about action in the community and that really is at the heart of the project. It is hoped that children will learn to become more involved in activities which will allow them to grow into more caring citizens.
