Phoenix is now a 'Hub' for Global Learning!
What is the Global Learning Programme?
The Global Learning Programme (GLP) will create a national network of like-minded schools, committed to equipping their pupils to succeed in a globalised world by helping their teachers to deliver effective teaching and learning about development and global issues at
Key Stages 2 and 3.
By giving schools the tools to embed global learning into teaching across the curriculum, the GLP is helping schools to:
- promote SMSC
- prepare pupils for modern life in Britain by promoting values such as empathy, fairness and respect
- develop and enhance enquiry and critical thinking skills
- improve pupil engagement
- deepen curriculum knowledge and understanding
- expand global awareness
- strengthen school ethos and values
- support teacher professional development.
What is global learning?
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. There are several definitions of the term ‘global learning’ and ‘development education’. In the context of the Global Learning Programme, global learning encourages critical examination of global issues and an awareness of the impact that individuals can have on them.
Schools participating in global learning, recognise the impact that knowledge and understanding of development can bring to pupils’ learning across the curriculum.

But why is the demographic explosion and its effects ignored by policymakers and the media? Why do important people within the global environmental movement itself avoid the great challenges of the population issue?

International Day of Persons with Disabilities - 03.12.2016
This Day aims to promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilise support for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities. It also seeks to increase awareness of gains to be derived from the integration of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.
The children were shown a video clip ‘Motion Disabled’. Here they were able to see animated versions of real people living with conditions such as spina bifida, cerebral palsy, missing limbs, brittle bones and short stature, performing everyday activities. The aim was to raise awareness of disability rights and to generate a discussion about what ‘disability’ means.
