Theme: Sustainable Development Education and Education for Citizenship
St Paul’s High School is an inspiring example of a school that has adopted a whole school approach to global citizenship. The school’s achievements in this regard have earned it national recognition as a finalist in the 2011 Scottish Education Awards (Sustainable School Category) and as a winner of the 2009 Scottish Education Awards (Active Citizenship Category).
The school’s approach and vision for global citizenship has made an identifiable impact on learners, helping them grow in confidence and providing them with real-life opportunities to develop their skills and transform their local community. The school has supported a wide range of activities to achieve this, most notably:
- Dedicated time within the social studies curriculum for learners to choose and engage with local community projects and tackle anti-social behaviour in the wider community
- A strong school ethos which puts respect for others and service to others at the heart of school life and the curriculum
- A sustained commitment to learner voice and a well-established school parliament that provides learners with decision-making powers and a budget to make things happen
- A diverse range of activities and initiatives which support a whole school approach including a Fairtrade group, Eco-Schools group and pupil campaign group
- Planned opportunities for personal achievement through S1 electives, S2 citizenship and S3 skills academy.
This CPD event offers practitioners and school leaders from across Scotland the chance to visit St Paul’s High School to meet with the Head Teacher, staff and learners and also tour the classrooms, buildings and grounds.
Those participating in the open day will also have time to reflect and share their own experiences.
