Students at a small primary school in west Suffolk have been rewarded for their sporting achievements.
Great Waldingfield Primary, which has just 140 pupils, has been given a ‘bronze award’ as part of the School Games Mark, a Government-led scheme which rewards schools for their commitment to the development of competition both as part of the curriculum and in the local community.
Michelle Ponsford, the school’s PE co-ordinator, said: “In the past year, the students have taken part in tournaments for everything from gymnastics, where they were county winners, to football, rugby, swimming and hockey.
“The award also recognises the number of clubs that we have up and running in the school. Great Waldingfield is one of only nine schools out of 59 in the area to get the bronze award. It’s a fantastic achievement and we are all really proud.”
