Knowing what it means to be part of a global community and a responsible global citizens who works for the good of their community, is something of great importance to us at Umberleigh Academy. Whilst with us, we strive to ensure that our children acquire a depth of knowledge about the world in which they live. Through this we want our pupils to build positive relationships with other children in the UK, Europe and from across the wider world. In order to achieve our goals each year group has a global partner country which they learn about and a partner school which they communicate with. Our Big Event curriculum provides plenty of opportunities through each theme to examine a range of global issues that are relevant to the pupil's lives.
