Global learning is a golden thread that runs through the heart of our curriculum. At Keeble, we are passionate about ensuring that children have opportunities to develop knowledge and understanding about the challenges we face in the world and and skills to make decisions for themselves. Equipped with these global capabilities, we empower our children to challenge and confront injustice and inequality, so that they can help to make a more just and sustainable world.
Global learning is embedded in our approach with our youngest children, so that they have a good understanding of how to make change, first in our local community and then further afield.
Global change makers
At Keeble, we are passionate about supporting our children to become confident, articulate change makers, who make a positive impact on our local community and further afield.
