We were nominated for an award at the Active Durham Sport and Physical Activity Awards 2017 and attended the awards ceremony on Friday 13th October 2017. We were up against four other local schools in our area who had shown a great contribution to PE and sport within their schools. But as a school we believe that sport, physical activity and physical education is important in developing opportunities for pupils and parents to lead an active lifestyle. From this we are pleased to say ………… WE WON!! We were awarded the Primary School Contribution to PE and School Sports award for Derwentside. From this we will represent all Primary and Infant schools from Dertwentside at the County Awards in January. Fingers crossed that we come home with another award.
