SELLY PARK GIRLS' SCHOOL HAS BEEN RE/ACCREDITED THE PRESTIGIOUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS AWARD
What is the International School Award?
The International School Award is a badge of honour for schools that do outstanding work in international education, such as through links with partner school overseas. The International School Award is a great chance for schools to demonstrate the important work they're doing to bring the world into their classrooms. Adding an international dimension to children's education ensures that they are truly global citizens and helps prepare them for successful future careers in an increasingly global economy. Successful schools must be able to evidence that Global Learning is truly embedded within the curriculum and that the school has had links with global partners around the world for at least three years.
What is the Global Learning Programme?
The GLP is a funded programme of support that is helping teachers in Primary, Secondary and Special schools to deliver effective teaching and learning about development and global issues at Key Stages 2 and 3.
Together with free training, guidance, resources and funded CPD, the GLP is building a national network of like-minded schools committed to equipping their students to make a positive contribution to a globalised world. Schools work together in networks ranging between 15 and 20 schools. Each Network is led by an "Expert Centre". Expert centres are typically very experienced schools that are entrusted to drive forward Global Learning in the local area. Expert Centres receive funding, this is dependant on how many schools are in each network.
Selly Park Girls' School is a GLP Expert Centre and has the largest network in the West Midlands. See attached list of network schools.
