Dear International Co-ordinator,
We are delighted to inform you that Summerhill Primary School has successfully met the criteria for the Intermediate level of the British Council International School Award. Congratulations!
Here are the assessor’s comments on your application. Please read them carefully and take any constructive feedback into account as you progress along your International School Award journey:
" This is a strong application from Summerhill Primary School, which meets the criteria for the Intermediate level. Indeed it almost meets the criteria for full Accreditation for which you plan to apply in 2018-2019! The general information statements at the beginning set out the historical context and the current breadth and ambition in useful and impressive detail. There has been an Erasmus+ KA1 Spanish language course and now a KA2 project with multiple partners. Rights Respecting School and other perspectives are embedded. In well chosen words on the Global Community section of the website ‘Spanish Springs at Summerhill’ but also a great deal more shown in diverse activities, most magnificently for a relatively small but incredibly dynamic school. The assessor was almost overwhelmed. Well done! As you intend, the obvious next step for Summerhill is full Accreditation which should include the submission of an Action Plan in the mid-autumn. This will allow your early proposals to be scrutinised by аn experienced assessor. Full details are available on SchoolsOnline, but briefly three collaborative activities, one focused on Modern Foreign Languages and three others are required, all within 2018-2019. There are many useful ideas for class-to-class activities on https://schoolsonline.
