Our Curriculum Intent

The Global Curriculum At Comber Grove Primary


At Comber Grove we deliver a Global Citizenship Curriculum

This is entrenched in social justice, equality, diversity and inclusion and sustainability. We weave this with our school values of:

Community, Pride, Empathy, Happiness, Individuality, Creativity


We intend to develop students who:

  • Create beautiful work which makes a difference to the world
  • Are global citizens, who want to make the world a better place
  • Care about the world and people around them
  • Think critically and are articulate
  • Have the skills to face an ever-changing world


We break subjects down into:

  • Driving questions
  • The facts we need to know to approach the question
  • The language we need to know to approach the question
  • The skills we need to do approach the question


Why do we teach a Global Citizenship Curriculum?


At Comber Grove, we know it is important that children see themselves, their heritage, their cultures, their religions reflected and taught. Not as a tokenistic celebration day or week, but weaved throughout the curriculum.


Our curriculum includes a well-rounded British history, including Black British history, British Asian history, women’s history, LGBTQIA+ history and role models from all of the above.


We teach social justice, sustainability, human rights and develop children’s voices and confidence to articulate and justify their thoughts. This development in children’s voices raises awareness and empowerment and promotes empathy.


We take inspiration from the United Nation's 17 Sustainability Goals - put in place to make the world a better place.


We implement this through our engaging, broad and balanced curriculum, entrenched in learning about and from current issues, social justice and being able to think critically about the world around us. We develop oracy and collaboration through Cooperative Learning structures.


The impact of which is children leave Comber Grove as academically and creatively successful, highly articulate young citizens, ready to face an ever-changing world.
