Global Neighbours

  We have been twinned with Malawi for our toilet twinning, how wonderful this is as we supported a school in Malawi as one of our charity projects just a few years ago.

  Our Global Influences club has started up now and we have had a ‘World Water Day Assembly’ led by year six and fives.

As a school, we are working towards a Global Neighbours accreditation from Christian Aid.

To achieve accreditation, we will need to demonstrate how we as a school fulfil courageous advocacy in the following areas:

· school leadership

· teaching and learning

· collective worship and spiritual development

· pupil participation in active global citizenship

· community engagement

Global Neighbours provides a framework for thinking about global citizenship education in schools. We will imbed this learning across our curriculum map, linking to many different subjects, with the intention of helping the children to become active global citizens. We will work to increase pupils’ understanding of why there is poverty and injustice in the world and engage and empower pupils with the tools they can use to be able to change and transform the world.

The Christian Aid website states that, ‘By helping pupils to claim their voice as global citizens, participation in the scheme will support schools develop and showcase their work in helping their pupils to become active global citizens and courageous advocates for change in the world, from a local to global level.’

Global Neighbours have run many assemblies this year to raise awareness for different causes,
this has included Comic Relief, World Water Day and Toilet Twinning.

We held a great challenge Day where all children dressed in blue to raise money for the Toilet Twinning charity. We held activities all day to help us think about our human rights and the rights of others in the world.
