In September 2012 we were awarded the Full International Schools Award to recognise the outstanding opportunities we provide our pupils.

I am delighted to inform you that Barton Primary School has been successful in gaining the International School Award and is accredited for three years from 1 September 2012 to 31 August 2015.

Here are panel’s comments on your application:

The E-Twinning project - Close Friends from Afar - is very good with good use being made of the twinspace. Very good embedded collaborative work with several schools. Other BC programmes are involved - Comenius, Comenius assistant - which is very good. Lots of other awards - Artsmark, Eco-Schools, ICT Quality Mark. Very impressed with the European element of the application.

Congratulations on working so hard to co-ordinate such an impressive range of work as the International Co-ordinator. You are a credit to the school and the wider community.
