I did manage to make it to Adel Primary School...

I caught the end of their assembly on the work of Oxfam. I'd been invited to their 'International Week' where they are celebrating global citizenship. I walked around the school with Stephen Boothroyd, the new headteacher. Every class had adopted a country and the classrooms featured displays of art, activities and games from every continent and examples where children were exploring new cultures and new languages... some of the younger children were counting and speaking in Italian!

It's really great to see our talented colleagues in wonderful schools celebrating the richness and diversity of the world we live in!
