School evens playing field

A Shropshire school has won a national award for sports for helping pupils to compete in a variety of activities at all levels. The Old Hall School has already scored three Gold Awards in the School Games scheme, but this year clinched a Platinum Mark Award, which recognises schools that support pupils in accessing sport in the wider community.

Head Martin Stott thanked staff, parents and volunteers who supported the school’s efforts to achieve the highest standards, saying, “All staff who teach PE and Games at The Old Hall School actively encourage children with enthusiasm, potential or interest  in a sport to join a relevant community club with which we have many links.”

“One area in which we have excelled is swimming and we outlined that as part of this award scheme. All children, Reception to Year 6, have one hour every week in the onsite pool shared with Wrekin College.”
