Parkend Primary School

Global Learning

Global Learning can be applied through any subject area of the school, it also lends itself to a cross-curricular approach as the topics and themes within Global Learning are naturally cross-cutting, and also support the wider school and community work, helping the children to realise links between different areas of school life.

The key curriculum benefits of a cross-curricular approach to Global Learning are:

  • enrich and strengthen cross-curricular learning experiences
  • enable teachers and pupils to link their learning across and beyond the curriculum
  • motivate pupils and teachers to tackle big global issues in a more coherent way.

At Parkend we are enjoying learning about the wider world community through many subjects and themed days.
