Hi Louise,

I think your idea of collaborating with colleagues and the creation of a DE Committee to enhance and develop the delivery of Development Education on a whole-school basis is an excellent plan. Anecdotally from my experience there is a lack of joined up thinking around Development Education in primary schools instead we have an ad-hoc class by class approach dependent on a teacher’s own interests and knowledge. Your suggestions here will certainly address these issues in your school. However, I think we need to go further and what’s needed is practical whole-school CPD in the area to help teachers integrate important topics like poverty, inequality, injustice, migration, and climate change into teaching, learning and assessment.
