International School Award
The Award is an internationally recognised accreditation, awarded to schools which forge links with partners overseas and add an international dimension to the curriculum. Through working on joint projects and adding international elements to lessons, pupils (and teachers) are given a fresh perspective on the world and their place in it.
Taking part in the Award:
links schools with others around the world
teaches pupils about other countries and cultures
prepares pupils for living and working in the global economy
enhances teaching standards through sharing best practice and teaching methods
leads to a new outwardly facing perspective and ethos for the school as a whole
By bringing international learning into our classrooms, we have learnt valuable lessons about sustainability, mutual respect, and citizenship. As a school community we have also developed new approaches, methodologies, and skills to improve the learning experience in our classrooms for all.
