How a primary school applied themes from the Global Learning Programme to their new curriculum

Global learning is really important to us because we have such a varied community. We have families from all around the world. It’s important that the children know that we respect their religions and their beliefs, and understand where they came from. It’s important that we teach them about the countries they came from as well as this country.
Jackie Gwatkin, Chair of Governors, Argyle Primary School

Argyle Primary School is a GLP Expert Centre based in Camden, London that values the importance of teaching children about the world around them. Since 2000, the school has successfully integrated across the whole-school curriculum education for sustainable development (ESD) and global learning. Due to the success of this strategy, during the 2014-15 academic year the school focused on embedding GLP themes in their new curriculum.
