Posted this on my school website on Friday – thought I’d share it here too because I’m very very pleased!!
We have just received some wonderful news to start the new academic year – Whitehouse Common Primary has been awarded the Full International School Award.
The British Council website says that “the Full International School Award accreditation is for schools that have successfully embedded internationalism into parts of the curriculum and whole school ethos.” We are very proud that all the exciting things we do at WCPS to look beyond our immediate surroundings and appreciate the lives, culture and beliefs of others has been recognised in this way, and we will proudly display the logo – and certificate when it arrives!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to achieving the award – our partner schools in Barcelona, India and Birmingham, all the visitors who have shared their experiences with us, the parents and families who share in our international work by showing an interest (and especially those who kindly sent letters in support of our application) and of course, most of all the staff and pupils of Whitehouse Common who participate in all the activities which such enthusiasm, interest and joy.
