A Chester primary school is celebrating receiving an award for its sports provision.
St Werburgh’s and St Columba’s Catholic Primary has picked up the School Games Bronze Award for their commitment to providing sporting opportunities for their pupils.
Over the last couple of years the school has increased the number of sporting clubs on offer to the children as well as providing clubs for more children in more year groups.
On top of this, St Werburgh’s and St Columba’s has had an extremely successful year of competition in sport, raising the standard of their achievments.
The Year 5&6 boys’ football team went undefeated throughout the year to be crowned champions of Chester – a feat they have never been done before.
Meanwhile, both the rounders and swimming teams came runners-up in their respective competitions against extremely strong opposition.
Matt Coaker, head of sports, said: “We are so delighted to finally get some recognition for our children’s sporting achievements which have greatly improved during the last couple of years.
“Children at St Werburgh’s are full of enthusiasm and energy and hope to host many sporting events this year.”
Headteacher Kathryn Oates added: “We are very lucky with our committed staff and children in school and are ecstatic at gaining this award and look forward to further developing sport in our school and community.”
The school is already making strides towards achieving the Gold award over the next 12 months.
