Year six children in the Priory Learning Trust tucked into the cold treats after finishing their spelling, punctuation, grammar, reading and maths SATS exams.

The trust mascot Percy PLT visited St Anne’s Church Academy in West Wick and Hewish and Castle Batch Primary School in Worle to congratulate the youngsters on their hard work.

St Anne’s headteacher Lisa Dadds said: “Our pupils have worked so, so hard over this year and this was a way of us saying well done.

“Percy PLT‘s visit was very popular with children and staff.”

Vicky Dupras, headteacher at Castle Batch, said: “There was a tremendous buzz around the school and this was a visit which will never be forgotten.”

The two primary schools joined the trust at the start of this year.
