Global Learning (GLP)
At Perrymount we built our curriculum around the Global Learning Principles which help pupils to understand that they have rights and responsibilities as citizens of the world in which we live. We aim to help pupil’s make sense of the world in which they live, to understand their role within our global society and learn and understand about their changing world. The GLP principles aim to:
- Help children understand their role in a globally-interdependent world and explore strategies by which they can make it more just and sustainable;
- To familiarise them with concepts of interdependence, development, globalisation and sustainability;
- To enable teachers to help children think in terms of social justice rather than charity;
- To stimulate critical thinking about global issues both as a whole school and at pupil level;
- To promote greater awareness of poverty and sustainability and explore these in the classroom;
The GLP focuses on developing children’s knowledge and understanding of global challenges allowing them to think critically about the issues, whilst developing skills and values as they consider the actions that they and others can take to overcome them.
