The global dimension of our school has been praised by the British Council International School Award.
We received the award from Neil Parish MP and John Rolfe from the British Council at a special assembly on Friday, January 27.
The award celebrates the school’s international ethos. Reception class children explore their identity and home languages. In Key Stage One, pupils are introduced to Barnaby Bear and invited to take him on adventures within the UK and abroad. Events such as World Peace Day, Chinese New Year and the European Day of Languages are also commemorated in assemblies.
In Key Stage Two children learn French and since 2015 have taken part in e-twinning projects with French schools. Willand School now has a permanenttwinned school in Poland where curriculum links are made and children can join a club.
Anne Hawkins, Headteacher, said: “It’s based on the work that we have been doing in the school for many years, so this is a culmination of the work that runs in our ethos and curriculum.
