Funding of £2 million has been secured from the Big Lottery and Ormiston Trust to enable all OAT academies to take part in meaningful social action through the #iwill project. This funding will provide all OAT academies an opportunity to develop students’ key social and emotional life skills through social action. It will also allow our communities to benefit from a sustainable bespoke project of which we can all be incredibly proud.

So, what is youth social action? Good question! By “youth social action” we mean practical action undertaken by children and young people in the service of others to create positive change.

Broadland’s #iwill pledge:

At Broadland High Ormiston Academy we are pledging to put the environment at the heart of our academy. We will strive to become an accredited ‘Eco-School’ by embedding meaningful youth social action opportunities aimed at improving the environment in both the school and the local community. We hope to nurture a life-long positive impact on the lives of our young people and their families.
