New for 2022/23 - Global Neighbours Scheme
Global Neighbours provides a framework for thinking about global citizenship education in schools. Using the curriculum and collective worship a global perspective will support in helping our children to become active global citizens.
The Global Neigbour Scheme aims to increase our children's understanding of the root causes of poverty and injustice, as well as engage and empower them as agents of change in the transformation of our world.
Being part of this scheme will support St. Peter's in our Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) provision, strengthen the promotion of fundamental British values, promote critical thinking across the curriculum, and strengthen links with the local community.
As part of our January Activity Week we will be launching this framework and sharing ideas with the children through practical, hands-on activities.
Global Neighbours can also enhance our teaching of Religious Education by increasing pupils’ knowledge and understanding about why and how Christians, along with people of other faiths and those of no faith, want to change the world to one where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty.
By helping our children to claim their voice as global citizens, participation in the scheme will support us to develop and showcase our work in helping our children to become active global citizens and courageous advocates for change in the world, from a local to global level.
