International Education

Young people growing up in Scotland today can look forward to spending their working lives as citizens of an increasingly complex world. International education will become fundamental to their realising their potential in such a multicultural and global society.

International education is a broad concept, and it can be exemplified in a variety of forms and experiences. These include school-based experiences, often using ICT, in addition to school links with other schools in Britain and abroad. Learning in and through international education can make learning about any subject or any cross-curricular theme more relevant and fun.

Global Citizenship

Developing Global Citizenship at Collydean Primary School focuses on recognising our responsibilities towards each other and the wider world.

Our aim is to ensure all pupils at Collydean Primary School are able to take up their place in the world, contribute to it confidently, successfully and effectively, understanding the rights and responsibilities of living and working in a globalised world.

Our Global Citizenship curriculum focuses on:

  • education for citizenship
  • international education
  • sustainable development education

These areas are developed through a whole school approach and a wide variety of activities

We constantly reflect on our practice, involving all partners, in order to ensure we are developing the skills, knowledge, attitudes and values for all pupils to allow them to flourish and succeed as responsible citizens in a global society.

We will prepare our pupils to be innovative contributors within their school, community, town, country and the world, understanding their role and Scotland’s role within the wider world.


Global Partnership

Global School Partnerships promote partnerships between schools in the United Kingdom and schools in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.

The programme aims to raise young people’s awareness of global development issues and equip them with the skills and knowledge to become active global citizens.

Our school is involved in the following ways:

* links with other Fife schools which are different to our own: small rural schools.

* raising money for The Chosen Children’s Village School in the Philippines

* welcoming the whole staff from a school in Norway for the day and extablishing links between classes.

* forming a link with a school in Africa through one of our teachers
