Exciting News: International Award Granted.
In September, we received some very exciting news: Broomgrove Junior School has been awarded ‘International Schools Status’ for the many projects we have taken part in. This is only awarded to schools who have been involved in seven international whole-school activities, including three with schools in other countries.
The awards process is rigorous and a detailed evaluation has to be submitted. This reflects a year to eighteen months of involvement. Once again, our wonderful children did us proud! The positive feedback from The British Council awarding body reflects this. Here are a few of the comments in our award feedback.
‘Global themes directly linked to Global Goals for Sustainable Development are at the forefront of the challenging and informative activities you have presented to your pupils’.
'Overall, the impact on pupils shows in their commitment to learning about issues affecting the welfare and education of children in other countries, and participating in activities that strengthen partner school links and enrich their shared experiences.'
'The fact that you are also unafraid to challenge teachers and pupils through extending certain activities, or to follow pupil-initiated ideas, has also impacted on the success of your international learning.'
