MORPETH First School has been recognised for its work to bring the world into the classroom.

The International School Award from the British Council is a badge of honour for those that do an outstanding job in teaching pupils about other countries and cultures.

This helps them gain the understanding and skills they need to live and work as global citizens when they get older.

International work carried out by the school in Goosehill includes teaching French throughout the school, running Italian, German and Spanish language clubs and a very successful Comenius arts project that covers six European countries and uses art, dance, architecture, crafts and music as tools.

Headteacher Elaine Reay said: “We’re very happy to receive this award in recognition of the work done by staff and children to promote global issues in school and the community.”
