As we look forward to welcoming back all our Trust pupils tomorrow, we are delighted to announce that Cringle Brook Primary has been awarded the British Council International Schools GOLD award!
Mrs Asif and staff have worked really hard and Cringle Brook has moved from Bronze level, right to Gold!
The judges were very impressed commenting,
"Such energy, enthusiasm and excellence! This application from Cringle Brook Primary meets the criteria for International School Award Accreditation, and so it is approved. In fact the website ‘ diversity’ tab would almost secure the award on its own! In the official application there are informative opening sections with some lengthy scene setting narrative and excellent quotes throughout e.g. OFSTED noted that "Pupils’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural development is rooted in the daily experiences planned for them. The pupils are taught that though small in this world, the difference they can make is great." A pupil told the inspector, ‘It is very important to have lots of different faiths and languages. If we didn’t, the world would be very boring." The seven activities impressively all have purposeful overseas collaboration most with a modern languages focus through Spanish or the school’s non-English native speakers. The assessor was particularly impressed by the way in which the school works so hard to keep harmonious relationships in the school community by their commitment to diversity - celebrating similarities between cultures and religions and reinforcing positive contributions from BAME groups. This application was a joy to read and assess"
