Global Neighbours

The Global Neighbours accreditation scheme is Christian Aid’s way of supporting, recognising and celebrating all that primary schools in England are doing to provide such an education. It has been developed by Christian Aid in partnership with the Church of England Education Office. 


Benefits of the scheme include:

  • broadening the horizons of the mind
  • providing real-life contexts for learning and opportunities for pupils to explore topical issues
  • cultivating the essential skills and values (from empathy to self-awareness and respect for all people) that prepare pupils for living well with their fellow human beings
  • contributing to improved outcomes across the curriculum and in pupils’ personal development, through enhanced skills in critical and creative thinking, reasoning and communication.


Hethersett VC Primary School is currently working towards this accreditation.  For more information please contact the School Office.
