Global Citizenship


The school holds the UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA)  at the highest level and is an "Expert Centre" within the Government Global Learning Development Programme sharing its excellent practice and leading training and development in this area for other schools. Dore Primary School holds the FULL International School Award (British Council), is a Fairtrade School and is an Eco Green Flag School.

"Your ambassadorial role comes across clearly and it is immediately apparent that you have given not only other schools, but the wider community the benefit of your exemplary practice.  This is very encouraging and highly commendable." International School Award Team - British Council - July 2014 - See the full assessment in files below.
 
 

Global Citizenship lies at the heart of our curriculum and many areas of our learning feed into understanding and caring for the world we live in and its people. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is a feature of our whole school ethos and we adopt the language of the convention. Our Values and Mottos are a great foundational language and understanding on which to build our local and global work and focus on the Rights of the Child based on the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child -1989 (CRC). We operate a Code of RESPECT.  To support our learning each year: we build in certain curriculum projects and studies, join in with global campaigns, reach out into our own and wider communities, conduct surveys amongst our pupils to monitor the success and impact of our work. We work closely with and enjoy support from DECSY (Development and Education Centre South Yorkshire) and we're members of the SEAL Global Development Team.

 
 
 
 
 
Children from Foundation to Y6 use  Social/Group Thinking Skills approaches to aid their learning including Philosophy4Children. See our information about TASC and P4C.
 
Annual events are; Children in Need; National Anti-bullying Week; UNICEF Day for Change; Send My Friend to SchoolRoad Safety Week; Fairtrade Fortnight. These regular enrichements of the curriculum provide valuable learning experiences and help Dore pupils broaden their horizons.
 
 
We regularly raise money to support local and global charities and wherever we can, we direct this into sustainable developments. We also raise awareness of issues, for example about education and healthcare. The children display their global learning for all to see.
 
In the past we have had direct links with several projects: A Romanian Orphanage: Kelli and Stephen Spurlock who work amongst refugees in Mae Sot, Thailand with PARTNERS: Relief and Sustainable Development : We have also supported SALVE by sending our outgrown children's shoes and rucksacks to street children in Uganda. In 2013 we developed a new link with a partner school, Jamisa Lower Basic School in The GambiaWe are always looking to develop more international links.
