International Schools Award

13th October 2017
We are delighted that Shanklea Primary School has been re-accredited with the British Council’s prestigious International School Award in recognition of our work bringing the wider world into the classroom. We are proud that this is the second time we have achieved this award. The International School Award is a badge of honour for schools that do outstanding work in international education, such as through links with partner schools overseas. Fostering an international dimension in the curriculum is at the heart of the British Council’s work with schools, so that young people gain the cultural understanding and skills they need to live and work as global citizens. Global citizenship skills are being developed via opportunities across the school to explore themes around diversity, conflict, fairness, equality and sustainability.
On hearing the news that Shanklea had received the award, Mrs Brown commented: “We were delighted to hear that we have again been accredited with the British Council's 'International School Award'. The work that has gone in to achieve this has been truly colossal and it's fantastic to see the efforts of our staff being rewarded. A massive well done to all concerned.”
