More than 200 primary school children took part in a paralympic sitting volleyball event at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield.

The event, organised by Helen Stevens from Points Learning Network at Westfield School, was part of a legacy programme from London 2012 and funded by the sport premium received by primary schools for the last two years.

Pupils from six schools attended and took part in a round robin of matches and a fantastic skills zone, courtesy of Dale Kerruish’s Sports Learning Zone. Teachers from Mansel, Monteney, Fox Hill, Mosborough, Hunters Bar Infant and Juniors supported the event.
