Valley Road School in Hendon is celebrating achieving the gold standard for the Great Active Sunderland Schools Charter.
The Great Active Sunderland School Charter has been developed to be a celebration of school’s who are improving the health and wellbeing of pupils, creating sport and physical activity opportunities and being a great community school.
The charter has 18 elements with schools across the city working towards achieving enough components to gain either a bronze, silver or gold standard.
Debra de Muschamp, headteacher, and Adelle Burnicle, PE leader at the school, said they are very proud of the school becoming one of the first schools in Sunderland to be awarded the gold standard for the Great Active Sunderland Schools Charter.
The charter has proved to be a great improvement tool and gives credit to the school for its achievements in creating a culture of sport, exercise, physical activity and healthy eating.
