Global Learning 

Global Learning at EWPS

At Ellen Wilkinson Primary School, we believe that every child should be given the opportunity to discover the wider world by equipping them with the skills and values necessary to live and work in

an increasingly globalised world.

How we teach Global Learning

In the past, we have celebrated Global Cultural Days involving the whole school and parents.

This academic year we are including Global Learning in some curriculum subjects like Geography, History and English Language. We intend to include Cultural Days and World Special occasions as well.

Children’s work are shared with partner schools in the United Kingdom and around the world.

At the beginning of each academic year, we ensure that the children are given the knowledge of the world ( the continents and countries on the World Map).

Recently our school received a British Council International School Award for our Outstanding Development of the International Dimension in the Curriculum.

We appointed Global Representatives from each class to collate other children’s point of view on global issues and areas they would like to explore.

How we know your child is succeeding

We measure success through evidence of:

  • Learning outcome
  • Critical and reflective thinking
  • Engagement in discussion
