Promoting Global Learning at Parish C of E Primary
As a school we aim to offer a curriculum that enables our children to grow and mature into individuals who love life and learning and recognise their place and responsibilities within a global society. We believe that our curriculum should include exciting and challenging global learning opportunities to help develop our children's understanding of themes such as: identity and belonging; sustainable living; fairness and equality; rights and responsibilities; and conflict resolution. In this way we hope our children at Parish C of E will develop a sense of their own nationality and culture, while at the same time developing a profound respect for the nationalities and cultures of others. We believe that Global Learning is important for our children to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to confidently face the world of tomorrow.
Each class plans opportunities within topics to allow for elements of global learning. As a whole school, our vision and values reflect our belief that children are global neighbours and our worship programme and PSHCE curriculum provide further opportunities for children to view themselves as global citizens with a care and concern for others internationally.
In recent years, we have previously had strong links with schools in Dubai, Uganda, and Oman.We are currently developing a partnership with two schools in the Moshi distict of Tanzania and have set up penpals with a school in Jeonju, South Korea. Our success in ensuring our children have effective opportunities to learn about their place in our global community has meant we have, in the past, been awarded a British Council International School Award for outstanding development of the international dimension in the curriculum and we hope to gain this award again this academic year! We hope to continue to build on the school's strengths in this area.
