The Master Mission is a set of tasks that have been designed specifically to encourage our pupils to become independent, self-reliant and dedicated learners, who contribute to their school and our wider community. There are three levels of Master Mission, which are Bronze, Silver and Gold.
As part of each level of the Master Mission, pupils need to complete a number of tasks which fall into four sections: extension, enrichment, challenge and service.
- The extension section is all about providing our pupils with the opportunities to extend their learning, in their own time demonstrating their commitment to their own learning. The extension tasks that need to be completed tie in with the school’s Big Question of the Week programme. This can be found on the Cumberland website and is available to all students on DPR.
- The enrichment section is about encouraging our pupils to visit places of interest such as museums, art galleries and landmarks. Pupils are also expected to participate in at least one of the many differing school clubs we have on offer at lunchtimes and after school.
- The challenge section encourages pupils to complete an activity which challenges them to develop physically, culturally and socially.
- The final section on service allows pupils to serve the school and community by completing activities which will benefit the whole school and wider community, through volunteering and fundraising activities. We encourage parents and carers to accompany students when volunteering within the community to ensure their safety. Volunteering opportunities at Cumberland school will be on display on our Master Mission noticeboard and regularly updated.
All pupils who have completed the Bronze Master Mission successfully will receive a Bronze Master Mission Award badge and certificate, and be invited to complete the Silver Master Mission Award, before moving on to the highest level – the Gold Master Mission Award.
