What is the E-ACT passport?
The E-ACT Passport is an official document issued by a government (or an academy) to its citizens (better known as pupils) authorising its owner to take part in a variety of wonderful and enriching challenges and experiences.
While the E-ACT Passport will almost certainly not be accepted at the check in desks of most airports, it will most definitely enable every one of our 15,400 primary and secondary pupils to take part in activities and challenges that aim to raise their aspirations.
How does it work?
The passport is designed for children from nursery up to the end of Year 13, and will give pupils access to life enriching activities relevant to their age groups as they graduate from one year to the next.
The passport works by giving pupils the opportunity to take part in a range of challenges or have enriching experiences in line with our values of thinking big, doing the right thing and showing team spirit.
How will the passport benefit pupils?
Passport challenges provide E-ACT pupils with opportunities they may not even know exist. For instance, it may be that they are challenged to walk or run two thirds of a marathon or take part in a mind relaxation course. They might even market and advertise a product!
The passport is about raising our pupils’ aspirations and confidence levels so they begin to believe in themselves and understand that there is nothing holding them back, including where they happen to live or their family’s experience in education.
We want to encourage them to step out from their comfort zones and to broaden their horizons, so pupils don’t forget your passport…
