Global Citizenship & Social Responsibility

Global Citizenship - A global citizen is someone who is aware of and understands the wider world and their place in it. Global citizenship is all about encouraging our pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and values they need to engage with the world. And it's about the belief that we can all make a difference.

Social Responsibility - showing concern for the consequences of a person’s or institution’s acts as they affect interests of other people and the environment. To responsibly be sure that what we have today will be here in the future. Social responsibility also involves:

  • Advocating citizenship and volunteerism to take good care of people and the earth

  • Recognising local and global interdependence

  • Advocating environmental sustainability

  • Engaging in and promoting rational discussion
