Mendip Green Primary School, in Greenwood Road, has invited a coach from the Football Association to provide lessons to some of its pupils.

The aim of the sessions is to encourage girls to take up football and increase participation in other sports.

They took part in their first lesson last week, where they learned a few key skills before taking part in a game.
