SPORT has helped boost the overall performance of pupils at Bleak Hill Primary School.

Head teacher Ian Wellens told school games organisers from across Merseyside the positive effect of sport.at the Windle school.

He was opening the Sainsbury's School Games Regional Conference – hosted by the Youth Sport Trust - at the Thistle Hotel, Haydock where organisers shared ideas.

Mr Wellens said the Sainsbury’s competition had contributed to the school’s success in becoming the current Merseyside County Sports Partnership Primary School of the Year supported by SGOs Damian Keegan from the council’s Sports Development team and Dianne Murphy.

St Helens Council’s Cabinet Member for Schools and Lifelong Learning, Councillor Sue Murphy said: “It was great to see Bleak Hill spotlighted as an example of good practice across the region.”
