A group of students who put in hours of extra work outside of school have been given awards to recognise their efforts.

Mead Vale Primary School, in Kestrel Drive, Worle, hosted a graduation for those who had taken part in after-school clubs.

The Children’s University scheme is run by Weston College, and youngsters can receive credits for taking part in sport and clubs.

Once they have spent a certain number of hours doing the activities, they receive a certificate.

A school spokesman said: “Children’s University celebrates achievements and raises children’s aspirations.”

The Children’s University project is also run in Ashcombe, Christ Church, and Milton Park Primary Schools.

Children at Hutton and Worlebury St Paul’s are also involved in the project.

The activities aim to introduce the children to new experiences, encourage curiosity and a love of learning and improve their confidence.
