Political success for school pupils

Have your say

PUPILS at a Sheffield school have been praised for displaying political prowess.

Youngsters from Nether Edge Primary School were named runners-up in the Speaker of the House of Commons School Council Awards.

The pupils, aged seven to 11, were given the honour after creating a map of the places where they felt most courageous in their local area.

Michele Nott, Nether Edge headteacher, said: “It’s been a great project.

“It has helped pupils develop a sense of wellbeing in a creative way.”
