Global Learning ProgrammeGlobal Learning at Fleckney

 

Global learning can be described as an approach to learning about international development through recognising the importance of linking people’s lives throughout the world. As a school community, we aim to provide for our children and equip them with the essential values, skills and understanding necessary for our modern day world.


Global learning is not a discrete subject area; it is a learning process prevalent in many areas of the curriculum and one in which helps determine our school ethos. Global learning plays a key role in the Spiritual, Moral, Cultural and Social (SMSC) core of the school.

Fleckney Primary school recognises the need to engage pupils in activities and approaches which will achieve the following outcomes:

Our focus

The core areas of global learning (values, skills and knowledge) are consistently addressed by all members of staff. Our current foci is as follows:
Values – These lie at the ‘heart’ of the school. Christian values are integral, underpinning our full understanding of British and Global Values.  These values are not seen as separate, but are all linked together.
In 2017 – 2018, Fleckney will be organising and leading a series of CPD training course in Values Education for 14 partner schools.
Skills – The focus for 2016 – 2017 (and going forward) has been on improving pupils’ critical thinking skills. All teaching staff have been trained in Philosophy for Children (P4C) and developing a critical thinking approach in subject areas. Two members of staff hold the P4C Level 1 accreditation (from Sapere).
Knowledge – Knowledge and understanding is developed through curriculum planning and delivery; assemblies and responding to events happening in the world. Pupils are encouraged to think critically about these ‘issues’, recognising that many are ‘bigger than self’ issues. Pupils have the opportunity to partake in an annual global debate with children from other schools which is held at County Hall. Children are also involved in national campaigns (ie. Den Day, Send my friend to school) and Fleckney leads a Geography transition Projects in the Summer term with local primaries and the feeder secondary school – this project addresses the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development.

Fleckney Primary School continuously develops its global learning and works very closely with GLP partner schools on this global learning journey.
