A SCHOOL in Blyth has been recognised for its commitment to giving pupils an understanding of international culture.
New Delaval Primary School has been awarded the British Council’s International School Award in recognition of its work to bring the world into the classroom and equip its youngsters with the skills needed in a global environment.
The award is a badge of honour for schools that do outstanding work in international education, like establishing links with partner schools overseas.
Headteacher Deborah Worrall said: “I am delighted that all the hard work of the staff, pupils and school community has at last been recognised nationally in this award.
“The children of New Delaval have a great enthusiasm for working with our international friends on joint curriculum projects, the benefits of which are apparent for all to see.”
The award is now available worldwide as part of the British Council’s Connecting Classrooms programme. Around 4,000 International School Awards have been presented to successful schools in the UK since the scheme began in 1999.
