Glenwood Primary School

Caring for Children

International School Award

After successfully achieving the foundation level British Council International School Award last year, we were encouraged by the feedback we received and we were inspired to apply for the full accreditation award. We were able to collaborate with other schools in a number of internationally-themed projects which improved our pupils' understanding of what it takes to be a global citizen. We also benefitted from time with a Spanish language assistant thanks to our involvement in the British Council's 'Around the World in Story Tales' project.  
 
Children in Glenwood Primary School have the opportunity to learn other languages such as French, Spanish and Portuguese during our annual 'European Languages Week' which often inspires our teachers and pupils to continue to learning their chosen language throughout the year. The children research and explore the culture and traditions of countries around the world and learn how to be responsible global citizens.
We, as a school, are extremely proud to have been awarded the British Council International School Award in 2017 and we are committed to maintaining our international status in the future.
