Have your say

MP David Blunkett presented an award to pupils at a Sheffield primary for their success in a national competition run by the Speaker of the House of Lords.

The MP visited St Catherine’s RC School in Pitsmoor after they came second in the Speaker’s School Council Awards 2013.

Pupils entered their own newspaper The School Councillor, which is put together every term.

Mr Blunkett said: “For the second year running St Catherine’s have taken on the best primary schools in England and once again have been awarded merit by coming second.”
