International recognition for Danetree Primary School.

The British Council has announced that the school has achieved intermediate level in the prestigious International School Award, in recognition of its work in bringing the world to the classroom in West Ewell.
"We are absolutely delighted to have received this award. We have been working hard on improving our level of international understanding in a variety of ways," said Global Enrichment teacher Sarah Rawlins.
Pupils have been swapping letters, pictures and videos with a partner school in Bangladesh - finding out about each others' schools and environment.
Danetree Primary School also has links with schools in South Africa and the USA and All the children have taken part in themed "Living Together in One World" activities linked to the United Nations Global Goals.
The award celebrates the achievements of schools which do exceptional work in international education to offer pupils the chance to gain cultural understanding and understanding they will need in later life.
"Danetree Primary School's international work has earned the school well-deserved recognition in the form of the British Council International School Award - Intermediate Certificate," said Stephen Hull, Project Manager at the British Council.
The school, part of the  GLF Schools multi-academy trust, also developed the curriculum to include a weekly Global Enrichment lesson.
International School Awards have been presented to successful schools in the UK since the scheme began in 1999.
