The Global Learning Programme in England is an initiative aimed at supporting the teaching and learning of global learning in schools in England at Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3. It is a five-year national programme of support to schools to enhance their provision of global learning. Specifically, the GLP-E works with teachers to enhance their confidence and ability to provide whole school support to global learning across their institutions. The GLP-E has a strong emphasis on research and evaluation, in particular using research evidence to support the development of better practice in the programme. The Whole School Audit (WSA) is an online data-gathering tool that respondents in participating schools complete after registering onto the GLP-E. This paper presents findings from the baseline analysis of WSA submissions for schools joining the GLP-E between June 2013 and February 2014. Specifically, the paper responds to four key questions: (1) Which schools are signing up for the GLP-E?; (2) Why are schools signing up for the GLP-E?; (3) What global learning activities are schools signing up to the GLP-E already involved in?; and (4) What are levels of global learning in schools signing up to the GLP-E? The following are appended: (1) GLP Whole School Framework; and (2) GLP-E Whole School Audit Questions.
