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).

    How we know your child is succeeding  

     We measure success through evidence of:

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

 In Quarter 3, some of our pupils visited one of our partner school, St. Mary's CofE LaddingFord Primary in Kent.

The purpose of the visit was to share school life in an urban setting, to a school life in rural setting. The pupils enjoyed their day out of school and learnt some key skills and knowledge that promotes global learning such as diversity and tolerance.
The pupils that visited St Mary's CofE shared their outcome in the whole school celebration assembly.

We are proud to be one of the schools that actively promoted Global Learning in our school curriculum and set aside days to celebrate our diverse culture.
