Green End / Ladybarn primary school has just been awarded the full International School Award from the British Council!
The International School Award is a badge of honour for schools that do outstanding work in ensuring that the curriculum has the thread of Global Citizenship (Diversity, including international school links, Globalisation, Social Justice, Peace and Conflict and Sustainability) running through it, so that young people gain the cultural understanding and skills they need to live and work as global citizens.
