Christ The King RC Primary School

International School Award

We’re delighted to announce that Christ the King RC Primary School 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. By fostering an international dimension in the curriculum, young people can gain the all-important cultural understanding and skills they need for life and work in the modern world.

With this aim, 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 explore the world around us from Foundation Stage through to Upper Key Stage 2. International themes permeate our learning and this is fundamental to the fabric of our educational experience. Working within a multicultural and diverse school, we understand the importance of promoting tolerance, respect, and understanding of the world, whether this be our local community or globally. With different schemes of work and specialist French language teachers, we are constantly developing our teaching to fully embed international understanding and awareness throughout the school.
