At Princess May Primary School, we provide pupils with a global curriculum based on knowledge and skills that is relevant for the 21st century. These skills are critically important for future success. We believe that global learning helps pupils make sense of the increasingly complex and rapidly changing world in which they live. Our curriculum enables pupils to think critically about world issues and to develop an awareness of the impact our own actions can have on others.
World Leaders have committed to the Sustainable Development Goals. They consist of 17 goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things by 2030: to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change.
The 17 Global Goals underpin everything Princess May stands for and what we do. Therefore, Princess May and our community became 'Changemakers'. We could see that each one of the school community individually and collectively could make a difference. Collectively, we embarked on a journey to understand the issues; found a voice and pledged to actively make a difference.
These 17 Global Goals are broken down into knowledge and understanding, skills, and attitudes. They are explored through all areas of the curriculum and across the subject disciplines.
We provide rich opportunities for the children to explore citizenship and real-life world issues, which at times they may have to grapple with to make sense of it. This, in turn, helps them to develop skills such as collaboration and communication, thus equipping them with the necessary skills for life in the 21st century. Across each year a number of high-quality core texts are used to bring the themes to life for our children and to promote a connectedness with the learning.
