Send my Friend to School is a national campaign run by the Global Campaign for Education (GCE), which Clacton Coastal Academy have been involved with every year since 2005. This year the focus of the campaign is on children with disabilities. 

It has members in more than 100 countries around the world. Their aim is to encourage world leaders to pay attention, to make plans and give money to education. They can do this by working together and by keeping the promises made in the year 2000 that all children would be in Primary School education by the year 2015. Some countries need to provide the aid they promised, others need to make sure the aid gets spent on education, and many need to spend more of their own money on schools and teachers. 

All students in Years 7, 8 and 9 at Clacton Coastal Academy were given the chance to make a ‘Buddy’ to send a message to our Prime Minister via our MP. All these Buddies have been joined together to make a very long chain. 

Send My Friend to School brings together thousands of children across the UK to speak up for the right to education and the students here have been glad to pass on their thoughts to our Prime Minister in this way.
