We live in a time of rapid change, when, for the first time in history, we are preparing our learners for a future which we cannot describe. The education of learners must be adaptive to this dynamic and ever-changing world, and for this to happen, schools must place the learner and learning at the very core of everything it does.
Each theme of work in our curriculum connects to the core principles of international mindedness and global citizenship. This gives learners the opportunity to develop critical thinking about complex global issues in the safe space of the classroom. As learners connect their learning to the real-world, they are encouraged to explore, develop and express their own values and opinions, while listening to and respecting other people’s point of view. Young learners are able to make informed choices about exercising their own rights and their responsibilities towards others.
