ALNS is very proud to have been awarded the International Schools Award. The award is given to those schools who demonstrate outstanding commitment to Global Learning. The International School Award is a prestigious badge of honour for schools that can bring an international dimension to teaching and learning. The accreditation aims to introduce or develop your school’s international dimension by providing:
- a framework for international partnerships and global learning
- recognition for teachers and their school
- opportunities to raise the school’s profile through local and national media.
The detailed report from the awarding body said:
“The international dimension to your school’s curriculum and whole-school ethos is clearly evident as a complement to your RRSA and GLP work, promoting citizenship throughout the school and wider community…… Your activities cover a range of curriculum areas, large numbers of students of different age groups and take place over the course of the academic year, with a good mixture of ongoing and one-day “stand-alone” special events…… Your pupils have also clearly gained considerably in their skills and outlook, as well as an increased knowledge and awareness of other countries and cultures. Your fund-raising work is well-managed in that it involves classroom-based learning and involves collaboration with your international partner schools.”
We will be invited to an Award ceremony to celebrate this amazing achievement. We are delighted to have this level of recognition for all the Global Learning that takes place at ALNS.
