The ceremony is held towards the end of every summer term at the Mowbray Road-based school.

While they are mostly focused on the achievements of Year 6 children who are about to leave for secondary school, the event also aims to celebrate the achievements of children right across the school.

As well as being eight awards for hard-working pupils from each year group, there were also 10 Year 6 subject award-winners, as well as sports awards.

Fifty children out of the 470 pupils were presented with trophies for their outstanding efforts, though school bosses stressed that they are proud of each and every pupil.

Clare Atkinson, the school’s community links co-ordinator,said: “We are really proud of all of our children at Fens.

“We just want to celebrate with the community the outstanding achievement of our children.”

Amongst the year group winners were Luke Usher from reception class, Year 1 pupil Megan Willis, Year 2 pupil Riley Hodgson, William DuPlessis from Year 4 and Molly Dowson from 
Year 5.

Year 6 pupil Megan Bushnell won the Bill Ogden Award, which is presented in memory of the Friends of Fens founder to pupils who go above and beyond in helping in school and the community.

Manor College of Technology staff Pam Fisher and Rachel Hall presented the awards during the event, which was organised by Fens’ PE co-ordinator Elaine Wilkinson.
