International School Award
Christ the King RC has been awarded the foundation level of the British Council’s prestigious International School Award in recognition of its work to bring the wider world into the classroom.
The International School Award celebrates the achievements of schools that take part in exceptional work in international education. 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 for life work in today’s world.
The International School Award encourages and supports schools to develop:
- An international ethos embedded throughout the school.
- A whole school approach to international work.
- Collaborative curriculum-based work with a number of partner schools.
- Year-round international activity.
- Involvement of the wider community
At Christ the King we are immersed in international themes throughout the whole of their learning and this is fundamental to the fabric of their educational experience. Working within a multi-cultural and diverse school, we understand the important of promoting tolerance, respect and understanding of the world around us, whether this be within our local community or globally. Through a broad and balanced curriculum, we explore the world around us from our foundation stage through to upper key stage 2, developing the previous year’s knowledge so every child is aware of the world in which they live in. We are constantly developing and improving our teachings, through different schemes of work to support our learning as well as specialist teachers to explore the language of French, fully embedding international understanding and awareness as every child works throughout our school.
