Want to empower the next generation of agents of change?
Welcome to Global Neighbours - our new and exciting school accreditation scheme.
In partnership with the Church of England’s Education Office, we want to encourage a deeper understanding of global injustice and the Christian response to it in primary school pupils across England.
Registration is free, as are most resources. There is only a charge when a school applies for an award, to cover the basic costs of an assessor’s time and travel, and of running the scheme.
Current costs are:
|Size of school (number of pupils)||Bronze||Silver/Gold|
|Very small (less than 100)||£60||£250|
|Small (between 100 and 210)||£80||£325|
|Large (more than 210)||£100||£400|
At this stage, yes.
We are currently only able to receive applications for accreditation from schools in England. Schools outside of England can still access all our school resources.
Schools can apply at any time. The first assessor visits to schools will take place from April 2018 with awards made shortly after.
You will receive full details upon registration - which is free and comes with no obligation.
The Global Neighbours handbook should answer any further questions you may have.
Yes, in so far that it helps demonstrate your school’s fulfilment of the accreditation criteria and is work that is currently being implemented in your school.
Yes. Our teaching and learning resources are freely available via our website, and our volunteer Christian Aid Teachers will still provide support subject to availability.
