The International School Award (ISA) is a prestigious accreditation scheme, managed by the British Council. The Award recognises and celebrates schools that are committed to developing international partnerships which enrich the curriculum and help young learners to become global citizens.
This is what the British Council said about us
‘The panel considered the quality of your school’s international work to be outstanding.’
‘Very good planning and well thought out international activities – very well prepared. Also good use of MFL [modern foreign languages] – French [is] incorporated into cross-curricular activities. A sophisticated, well thought out and well developed global dimension. Some outstanding collaborative work with partner schools.’
The British Council reserved special praise for Ms Helen Roberts and Mrs Emily Crow
‘Congratulations on working so hard to co-ordinate such an impressive range of work’ as the International Co-ordinator! You are a credit to the school and the wider community.’
A huge well done to both Ms Roberts and Mrs Crow and all the staff and children at Charles Dickens Primary. We are indeed very proud!
