A SCHOOL has been given a silver award in recognition of its commitment to sport and physical education.

Bournville Primary School, in Selworthy Road, has been given the Sainsbury’s School Games Mark.

It is a Government-led scheme which rewards schools for their commitment to competition.

Bournville provides a range of PE lessons and extra-curricular sports clubs.

The school already had a bronze award but this has been upgraded.

Helen Wright, year six teacher and Bournville’s PE lead, said: “We are incredibly proud of the award. It is a true reflection of all the dedication and commitment that the children put into PE.”

It has been a good year for Bournville Primary School, which was rated ‘outstanding’ in a recent Ofsted inspection.
