International Work At St Bart's

International School Award

We are very proud to have been awarded the International School Award.

The International School Award presentation was hosted by Scott McDonald, Chief Executive of the British Council 20 March 2023 at The Houses of Parliament, in recognition of St Bartholomew's international work and our fantastic French teacher Madame Ives collected it on our behalf.



"St Bartholomew's Catholic Primary School has successfully met the criteria for Accreditation for the International School Award. You have a very active partnership with a French school and have arranged a variety of excellent collaborative activities that will have created such enthusiasm for language learning in your pupils. You have also allowed your pupils with non-English mother languages to celebrate their diversity, which is very creditable. As you develop your international curriculum, you might consider introducing some opportunities for your pupils to learn about global issues, such as climate change and plastic pollution, and then for the pupils to take action. Sometimes a pupil committee can prove an effective way to get both pupils and their parents engaged. You might also consider introducing activities related to international calendar events, such as Fairtrade Fortnight or World Water Day. Such activities will allow your pupils to develop all aspects of their global citizenship, as well as their language learning. Well done and congratulations on the great international work that you have integrated into your school."

Epiphanie 6 janvier


The celebration in France is called La fête des Rois (The festival of the Kings).

The special cake we eat is called la galette.

The youngest child in your family (or class) sits under the table and chooses who has each piece.

If you find la fève (the bean/charm) in your piece of galette you become le roi (the King) or la reine (the Queen) for the day!
