Erasmus Project 2018 – 2020

Guiding the Development of Responsible Citizenship in Schools



This project is co-funded by the British Council and the European Union. The project is entitled ‘Guiding the Development of Responsible Citizenship in Schools’. As the lead school we work collaboratively with our three partner schools, from Greece, Hungary and Poland to promote global citizenship with our whole school communities, locally, in Europe and the wider world. Teachers and school staff from all three schools have had and continue to have a range of opportunities to be actively involved in the project including professional development mobilities to each partner country. Schools involved in this project with Glebe are:

10th Primary School of Kalamata, Greece
Budapest IX. Kerületi Weöres Sándor Általános Iskola és Gimnázium, Budapest, Hungary
PSP Oddzialami Integracyjnymi im Wincentego Kwasniewskiego, Zblewo, Poland

Activities for this project include:

September 2019 - 2020

Further mobilities are being planned which include:

  • A visit to the Hungarian school in the Autumn Term 2019, based around the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
  • A visit to the Polish school in Spring Term 2020 based around how global citizenship is promoted in Europe and other countries around the world.
  • A final visit will be hosted by Glebe in the summer term 2020, which will involve the three partner schools evaluating and reporting to the British Council on the outcomes of the project. Pupils will also produce a booklet about how to be a Global Citizen and this will be shared with the British Council and the European Union.   

October 2019 - Poland Mobility

5 members of staff from each partner school, including staff from Glebe visited the partner school in Poland and focused on Global Citizenship Education and how it is promoted in European schools. Participants took part in a tree planting activity with pupils from the school, visited places of cultural heritage interest, taught pupils from the school, met with local dignitaries and community groups and planned for the next phase of the project. Feedback from staff was very positive and project meetings were productive with lots of collaborative teamwork between the schools.   

May 2019 - Greece Mobility

5 members of staff from each partner school, including staff from Glebe took part in this professional development opportunity which focused on Global Citizenship Education, Refugee Day (20.6.19) and the refugee crisis in Greece and planning of pupil and school activities for Europe Day (9.5.19). During this visit the local press attended a professional development meeting and reported back to the local community about the project and our work together via the evening news and local newspapers. Staff fed back that this had been an amazing CPD opportunity and valued the experience of visiting a European school and learning about the refugee crisis in Greece.  

January 2019 - Logo Competition

All pupils from the participating schools designed a logo for the project. Six winning entries from each school were chosen and uploaded to a secure platform where pupils from all schools voted for their favourite logo.
