The Junior School have recently been awarded the Intermediate level of The International School Award from The British Council.
‘Well done Bootham Junior School, you have certainly demonstrated your desire to embrace internationalism and make your pupils globally aware. The pupils in your school have an amazing opportunity with the language work available, your striving for greater cultural awareness will certainly enhance this offer. You have obviously formed some good international links with other schools and these seem to be co-operating well. The school ethos of being “Stewards of the World” provides a strong platform for looking at the Sustainable Development Goals and your activities highlight a great approach to this area of global citizenship and asks some very important questions. This is a useful approach to promote critical thinking and develop international awareness.
This application at Intermediate level is very good and the school should work towards Accreditation level very soon. Good luck.’
