Welcome to Global Schools!

“Leeds DEC’s work with our school has taken our children in new and exciting directions, beyond the confines of school and our local community, giving them a sense of being citizens of the world and a chance to think about the social responsibility that comes with this.”

Sarah Rutty, Headteacher at Bankside Primary School

The Ofsted framework requires that pupils Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural (SMSC) development and promotion of fundamental British Values needs to be at the centre of schools’ work in order to achieve ‘Outstanding’ status.
