Parish CE Primary are celebrating after receiving The International School Award which celebrates the achievements of schools that do exceptional work in international education.
The award is in recognition of Parish’s fostering of an international dimension in the curriculum which is at the heart of the British Council’s work with schools so that young people gain the cultural understanding and skills they need for life and work.
Parish’s international work includes working alongside schools in Dubai and Mexico, sharing their good practice and projects that are specific to their cultures, ensuring all children are global citizens.
In the summer the whole school virtually jetted off to many destinations on a mission to develop their knowledge of various other cultures and diversities.
On hearing the news that Parish had received the award, Tracy Foster, acting assistant headteacher and modern foreign language lead said: “We were delighted to receive this reaccreditation which shows the hard work and dedication of the school and its pupils.
“We are committed to ensuring international partnerships and global learning in a stimulating and exciting environment”.
Sir Ciarán Devane, chief executive of the British Council, said: “Parish has brought the world into its classrooms, earning them the British Council International School Award. Their pupils’ education is enriched with international activities that help children develop the skills they need to thrive in a globalised world”.
