Glebeland Community Primary School works with a School in France and The Democratic Republic of Congo on cultural education and thus have been awarded International School Status.

The International School Award is a badge of honour for schools that do outstanding work in international education, such as through links with partner schools overseas. Fostering an international dimension in the curriculum is at the heart of the British Council’s work with schools, so that young people gain the cultural understanding and skills they need to live and work as global citizens.

We are delighted to report that having held this prestigious award for three years we have now acheived re-acreditation and will be able to proudly display the International Schools Award logo for a further three years.

Glebeland School’s international work includes having active links with schools in France, Germany and The Congo, carrying out joint projects with the children at the schools. Leanne Cahill International School co-ordinator at Glebeland School said “It is important that the children at the school have an insight and understanding of the environmental and cultural differences worldwide. Our pupils have benefited from the shared experiences, which inform their views and inspire them for their futures."

On awarding us with our re-acreditation the accreditation committee said: “...there have been a number of appropriate activities including three with overseas collaboration, a modern languages focus and a number of other other activities which have collectively engaged pupils and staff during 2017-18.  Well done!"

We are very pleased that, as a small rural school, we are able to develop international links with other schools in order to broaden our children's understanding of different clutures around the world

We recently held an International Day at Glebeland and were joined by children from Barnby to explore the cultural and geographically differences of countries around the world.  We made volcanoes from Iceland, Totem poles from Kenya and models of the Eifel Tower - from spagetti and marshmallows - and made masks like those worn by the Luchador wrestlers of Mexico.
