Our school has adopted the Global Neighbours framework which drives our curriculum planning to develop pupil thinking for global citizenship education in schools.
It supports us to expand our ideas for curriculum and collective worship activities, weaving a global perspective into our current curriculum provision and encouraging our children to become active global citizens.
The framework aims to increase pupils’ understanding of the root causes of poverty and injustice, as well as engage and empower pupils as agents of change in the transformation of our world. Participation in the framework has helped to build upon the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development of pupils, strengthen the ‘promotion of fundamental British values’, promote critical thinking across the curriculum, and strengthen links with the local community. Global Neighbours can also enhance Religious Education provision in schools by increasing pupils’ knowledge and understanding about why and how Christians, along with people of other faiths and those of no faith, want to change the world to one where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty.
