SPALDING’S Gleed Boys’ School has become the first in South Holland to gain an award under The Citizenship Charter.
The school has been presented with a plaque for achieving the Silver Plus level as part of its work with developing pupils as active citizens.
The idea of the Citizenship Charter was first raised by the South Holland Youth Council, Gleed Boys’ teacher Anthony Grunwell and former St Guthlac School, Crowland, headteacher John Potter about a year ago.
South Holland District Council then provided funding for it to be made possible and the charter was written by pupils and teachers.
Mr Potter said: “We are very proud of it. We are also hoping to spread the idea much wider.”
