Youngsters at Tipton St John Primary School have been taking part in the Government-led School Games Mark and have been awarded the prestigious award.

Richard Hatswell, teacher and sports coordinator, said: "The children have experienced sessions in kayaking, raft building, taekwondo, laser arrow, street surfing, climbing, aerobics and maypole dancing.

"We are so proud of our children.

" I think that this is a remarkable achievement bearing in mind the size of our school.
