Membership in the time of COVID

We are adapting ourselves, and have taken a careful look at what member benefits we can offer schools online. Take a look below to see what we have added to the support we offer our school members - we have worked on how we can support you remotely and have some new ways to help you teach global learning within the school for the good of your pupils and community.

Our resource boxes are ready to loan!

we are using a strict quarantine and cleaning regime for all boxes so that there is no chance of the virus being passed between schools through the artefacts (if you have any particular ways we have to do this for your school or organisation, please let us know).

Take a look at our full list of resources here and how they will help you with your curriculum at different Key Stages, plus how the Sustainable Development Goals fit into them.
