Neston Primary School has joined an elite group of schools by winning The School Games Platinum Award in recognition of their PE and after-school activities.
The school is one of just a handful of Primaries across Cheshire West to receive the top level of the School Games Mark. The scheme rewards schools that maintain consistently high standards, and Neston Primary has achieved ‘Gold' status for five consecutive years.
Headteacher Rob Golding said: "We have always encouraged participation in PE lessons and extra-curricular activities. Alongside our sport lessons we offer 30+ clubs and activities across the year - a large percentage of which are sports based.
"It is a great honour to have been award the Platinum Award and we are very proud of our school, staff, pupils and sports leaders."
The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of sport across their school and into the community.
