A school has been praised for its connections to the wider world.
Sutton Lower School has been given the British Council’s International School Award.
It is a badge of honour for schools that do outstanding work in international education so that children gain an understanding of other cultures.
Sutton Lower has links with schools in Kenya, France and now New Delhi.
Headteacher Sarah Stevens said: “We have been working towards the International School Award for three years now and it has been a fabulous program.
“We have had visitors from Kenya to our school and children have had the opportunity to learn more about the lives of children elsewhere.
“Perhaps most excitingly we have just made links with another school in New Delhi and we hope that the children will soon be Skype-ing friends in New Delhi and that they will be taught in February by teachers from this new school.”
Last year teaching assistants, Helen O’Neill and KellyAustin, spent 10 days visiting Kapsogom School in Kenya.
And in September Sutton Lower gained Chinmaya Vidyalaya School in India as another partner school.
