At our school we provide pupils with a skills based global curriculum that we feel is relevant for the 21st Century. These skills are critically important for future success. We believe that global learning helps pupils make sense of the increasingly complex and rapidly changing world in which they live. Our curriculum enables pupils to think critically about world issues and to develop an awareness of the impact our own actions can have on others.
The seven themes children are exposed to across all year groups are:
- Social justice and equity
- Identity and diversity
- Globalisation and interdependence
- Sustainable development
- Peace and conflict
- Human rights
- Power and governance
These seven global learning themes are broken down into knowledge and understanding, skills and attitudes in the Inspire Partnership skills maps (school to attach a link to the skills maps here)
Diversity, community and global learning are achieved through planning learning experiences and journeys linked to our five curriculum drivers.
The five curriculum drivers are:
- Finance and Enterprise
- Digital Literacy and Communication
- Physical and Wellbeing
We provide rich opportunities for the children to explore citizenship and real life world issues, which at times they may have to grapple with to make sense of it. This in turn helps them to develop skills such as collaboration and communication thus equipping them with the necessary skills for life in the 21st Century.
