Teachers to have the opportunity to visit link schools to share good practice In order to gain the International School Award, Sandridge have been hard developing our international links. In addition to everyday teaching in Geography, English and topic lessons where pupils may learn about other countries around the world, we have set up at least 7 activities that will develop children’s learning about the world. Some of these activities will be linked with our partner schools; 2 French schools and 1 school in Texas, USA!
