Discover how a creative curriculum can benefit the whole-school community
An airport role play helps children to learn about travel and the global community
In school, ‘community’ means the children and their families, the staff and those who live and work in the neighbourhood. Today, the school community also reaches out to the wider world, to other parts of the UK, and beyond, to the global community. Community cohesion is about working towards a society in which there is a common vision and sense of belonging by all communities. It is about appreciating and valuing the diversity of people’s backgrounds and providing similar life opportunities to all, where strong and positive relationships are developed. The goal of community cohesion is to help children live and thrive alongside people from all backgrounds. Taking Ofsted’s question about community cohesion, ‘What are you doing about it?’, we take a look at one school in Wolverhampton that has used their curriculum choice, the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), to help them address community cohesion in a meaningful and relevant way.
