In 2015, the 193 member states of the United Nations agreed on an action plan to tackle the issues facing our world. The action plan outlined 17 Goals for a sustainable development of our world.
It is important that adults help children make sense of the increasingly globalised, complex and rapidly changing world in which they live. Global Learning enables pupils to think critically about world issues and to develop an awareness of the impact our own actions can have on others. The main aim is to equip young people with the essential knowledge, skills, attitudes and dispositions that will enable them to realise their potential and make a positive contribution to our world.
At Britannia Primary School and Nursery, each half term the children learn about the 17 Global Goals and complete an activity to help their understanding.
