Yatton’s infant and junior schools have received an Active Healthy Schools Award.

Jon Heywood, the schools’ ‘delighted’ deputy headteacher, said: “We are especially proud that our links with the local community, the large range of physical activity opportunities we provide, the way we encourage children to take on responsibilities and the work we do to support children emotionally and socially are seen as particular strengths.

“We will, of course, continue to explore ways we can further develop what we offer and provide for the children to improve their health and wellbeing.”

The schools were praised for promoting both the emotional and physical wellbeing of their young pupils.
