Wrangle Primary School has been award a gold in the Government-led Sports Games Mark awards scheme.

Wrangle Primary School achieved silver last year, but this year had gone one better and been awarded gold status.

Headteacher Caroline Lister said the school was ‘very proud’ to receive the award and spoke about the wide range of sporting activity at the school.

“We attend a variety of competitions, have a range of after school clubs including Futsul, multisports, and cheerleading and our main summer activity is around our swimming pool when children swim up to three times a week between April and October,” she said.
