The Global Curriculum was created in 2009 and has been developed by the school ever since. It is unique to Grendon CE Primary School and has received universal praise from OFSTED, Peterborough Diocese and all school stakeholders for raising standards, engaging children in learning and promoting global citizenship. Supplementing the Global Curriculum are incredible Learning Environments which challenge the traditional view of the classroom and promote immersion in study.
In 2013, OFSTED commented on the Global Curriculum:
'The oustanding curriculum enthuses pupils and staff alike. It ensures that all pupils make excellent progress and reach high standards.'
'The Global Curriculum has made an exceptional contribution to the achievement of all pupils throughout the school.'
One parent was quoted in the recent OFSTED Report as saying:
'The Global Curriculum and the learning environments are so enjoyable and stimulating that children cannot fail to learn.'
The Global Curriculum is a themed, skills based approach to real life learning and was the catalyst for Grendon CE Primary School being shortlisted in the Creative School of the Year category at the 2015 TES National School Awards.
All Global Curriculum themes are taught through the progressional, skills based approach detailed in the Planning for a World Class Curriculum framework. A link to this document can be found in the Key Information section.
