Global Education

Global Education

Intent

At Glasshouses School, we believe that educating our pupils to be global citizens will make them more aware of the wider world and give them a sense of their own role as a global citizen. We also believe that it will promote mutual respect and tolerance and help our pupils to value diversity. We live in an increasingly globalised and interconnected world in which the global is part of our everyday lives. Global Education has a critical role to play in equipping a generation with the vision and means to rise to complex challenges that transcend national borders.

We are determined that a global education will equip our learners with the skills and knowledge needed for critical and active engagement with the challenges and opportunities of life in a fast-changing and interdependent world. We intend for our pupils to develop the knowledge, understanding, skills, values and attitudes that they will need for life in the wider world. It is our intent that this knowledge will help them to participate fully in a globalised society and economy. It is our intent that the next generation  will work towards securing a more just and sustainable world. We want our pupils to work to make the world a more equitable and sustainable place.

As a Rights Respecting school, it is our duty to ensure that our pupils have a good understanding of the rights of all children and how they, as Rights Holders, can help to uphold the rights of children all around the world. We don’t just want our pupils to know about their rights, we want to empower them to participate in the protection of their rights, and the rights of others.
