Common Sense, the non-profit organisation dedicated to helping young children and families thrive in a world of media and technology, has recognised British School of Valencia as a Common Sense School.


“We applaud the faculty and staff of British School of Valencia for embracing digital citizenship as an important part of their students’ education,” said Kelly Mendoza, vice president of education programmes at Common Sense Education. “BSV deserves high praise for giving its students the foundational skills they need to compete and succeed in the 21st-century workplace and participate ethically in society at large.”


Students are using the immense power of the Internet and technology to explore, connect, create, and learn in ways never before imagined. BSV has demonstrated its commitment to taking a whole-community approach to preparing its students to think critically and use technology responsibly. The recognition acknowledges our school’s willingness to creating a culture of digital citizenship.


“We’re honoured to be recognised as a Common Sense School,” said Neil J Barnes (headteacher). “By preparing our students to use technology safely and responsibly, we are providing them an opportunity to build lifelong habits to help them succeed in a tech-driven world.”
