Award of CIS Re-accreditation

I received the following information from the Council of International Schools earlier this morning and I am delighted to be able to share it with you.
“Dear Alun,
The Council of International Schools’ Accreditation Service and its Advisors have now completed their study of the report submitted by the September 2017 CIS Visiting Team and considered its recommendation with regard to your school’s status within the accreditation process.
I am pleased to inform you that the Council of International Schools has decided to award CIS re-accreditation to Prem Tinsulanonda International School with immediate effect.
Warmest congratulations to you, your staff, and the entire school community on this achievement.
In reaching their decision, CIS took into account the Visiting Team’s commendations which were based on evidence of excellent and effective alignment with the standards for CIS accreditation. In granting the award of accreditation, CIS felt that the commendations or strengths of the school far outweighed any areas in which the school was deficient. Of particular note is the school’s very positive climate for teaching and learning, its responsive governance, its focus on student safety, its commitment to the school guiding statements and its empowerment of students.
These strengths should be celebrated by the school community. The complete list appears in the Visiting Team Report.
Although the Visiting Team clearly viewed the school very positively, it made many recommendations. The school will need to address these in the coming years.”
We will unpack the recommendations over the course of the next few weeks and we will incorporate them into the current strategic plan if they are not already included.
This is a massive commendation of Prem as an authentic international school and we can be justifiably proud of this achievement. We will, however, now be working to continue the systematic development of our school as a centre for inspirational learning opportunities.
Sincerely yours,
Alun Cooper Head of School
