Awards and Accreditations
International School Award
Hazel achieved full accreditation for the International School Award in August 2021. Here is an excerpt from our school's accreditation report:
"The international dimension is clearly embedded in your school's curriculum, development plan and whole-school ethos, dovetailing neatly with other priorities, such as MFL and UN Sustainable Development Goals. International activities, including dynamic collaboration with partner schools in a variety of other countries and continents, have taken place during the past two academic years, despite some necessary and expected curtailments and adjustments due to Covid restrictions. You have provided excellent detail about the activities, conveying a clear impression of curriculum-based pupil involvement, collaboration and outcomes. Your Impact Evaluation is detailed and insightful, highlighting benefits for pupils, teachers and local community groups. You acknowledge increased knowledge of other countries and aspects of their cultures and languages, awareness of key global issues, global citizenship attributes and skills, and an appreciation for cultural diversity. Teachers have also gained curriculum planning skills. The quotes from your pupils' feedback clearly indicate their enjoyment, interest and intercultural understanding gained from learning about other European countries via the eTwinning project. You have good plans to sustain and further develop your international school partnerships, activities and celebrations. Congratulations to all concerned! We wish you continuing success and enjoyment with your international endeavours. Congratulations on working so hard to co-ordinate such an impressive range of work as an International Co-ordinator! You are a credit to the school and the wider community."
