Well done everyone we have achieved Foundation level of the British Council International School Award! Our assessor said, “Well done Cockfield Primary you have very adequately shown that you have very seriously introduced the concept of internationalism and recognised the importance of this both because of your locality but also to ensure an understanding of the issues that face our world. ‘’
The assessor was very impressed with some of the activities which we have been working on: ‘’You have presented a comprehensive range of activities – the one about climate change for Year 5 and 6 looks an excellent opportunity both to engage externally but to incorporate some active learning which will reinforce the concepts covered. A highlight is also your Global Goals afternoon sessions where you incorporate solution based discussions this gives a forum for really developing critical thinking skills and over a period of time will give the chance for the younger children to become well informed and have excellent rationalisation skills.”
We are now looking forward to working towards an Intermediate Certificate. In order to achieve this, we have a created a Professional Partnership with Nxawe Primary School, Eastern Cape, South Africa.
