Liverpool Hope University groups
Since 2018, school has welcomed groups of students from Liverpool Hope University's Wider Perspectives in Education course. The week-long visits support our learning about the United Nation's Global Goals. Students work with classes throughout school with a focus on one of the 17 goals. Our children benefit from the students’ enthusiasm and energy. The creative workshops that they deliver engage and educate our pupils.
In 2018 on focus was on education and our children learnt that not all pupils across the world are able to attend school. This work linked to Global Goal number 4: Quality Education. We were delighted to welcome our local MP, Ms. Marie Rimmer to school to share our work with her.
In 2019 students used the book The Journey by Francesca Sanna to tackle issues around migration. We look forward to welcoming another group in 2020.
This allowed us to focus on different Goals as the book brings up many issues depending on the age of the children.
This short video shows some of the work completed in 2019.
