Abstract

The report focuses on the nature and impact on pupils of global learning in primary schools in England. It looks at what global learning and how it is practiced in the context of primary schools. It identifies factors which both encourage and limit global learning. It also explores how global learning can impact on children’s learning and development. While previously small-scale school-level impact research has been carried out, larger-scale evidence of the impact of global learning has been lacking. The report attempts to fill this gap, identifying patterns of engagement and measurable evidence of impact. The research responds to three questions: 1. What does global learning look like in practice in primary schools? 2. What are the facilitators and barriers to including global learning in primary schools? 3. How does global learning impact on children’s learning in primary schools? The research design combines both quantitative and qualitative research methods. The main method of data collection was an online questionnaire administered via Survey Monkey to be completed by school staff (mainly teachers and school management). 217 responses were received to the questionnaire. Additionally qualitative data was gathered via interviews with pupils in three schools at different stages of engagement with global learning. The analysis locates the data alongside previous research and evaluations that explore aspects of global learning practice or impact. It is hoped the research will be of value to teachers and school leaders, teacher educators and policy makers.
