A primary school has received an award for its sport provision.
St Anne’s Primary School, which has a site in both Hewish and West Wick, has received a ‘gold mark’ from the School Games.
School Games is a Government-led scheme which rewards schools for their commitment to sport and competition.
Gold is the highest award available.
The school’s play leader Lin Hodges said: “This is a brilliant achievement as it confirms what talented children we have at St Anne’s.
“We are all very proud to have received the award which shows our commitment in proving our children with as many opportunities to try out new sports and to achieve their goals.”
To receive the award, the school had to provide two hours of PE every week in its timetable.
It also organised a range of after-school and lunchtime clubs, and asked coaches from Weston’s sports clubs to visit and teach the children.
The pupils have competed at tournaments in North Somerset, including School Games.
Youngsters have also represented North Somerset in winter, spring and summer games at the University of the West of England.
Some of the children have also won competitions in cricket and archery.
Mrs Hodges said: “Generally we are doing a very good job at providing PE and sport provision at St Anne’s.”
