The Oldham Pledge provides and promotes opportunities for children and young people to develop key character traits, so that they are school ready, life ready and work ready.
The Oldham Pledge is a key school led action and it highlights the importance of supporting every child to grow into well rounded confident citizens who can succeed as individuals and contribute to their community.
As well as having the right technical skills and qualifications, children need to acquire the key, transferable skills and values that will underpin their jobs and careers in the future. It is important that this starts from a young age and is embedded throughout their school lives. With the right support children and young people can be empowered to actively develop these character traits themselves.
