A HARDWORKING 11-year-old was named as a primary school’s pupil of the year and received a glowing assessment from her proud headteacher.

The governors at Throston Primary School, in Flint Walk, were delighted to crown Megan Copeman as this year’s star pupil.

Every year as the end of the summer term approaches each class teacher nominates a pupil from their class who has performed particularly well that year.

The chair of governors then sift through the nominations before deciding the worthy winner.

Mark Atkinson, headteacher at the school, said: “Megan has done amazingly well this year, she has been fantastic and come on leaps and bounds.

“She is a very shy and quiet girl but she still got on stage and did a dance routine at our Throston’s Got Talent competition which was fantastic.

“She also exceeded all expectations in her SATs and got a Level 4 in all three subjects which was a fantastic effort.”

Megan, a Year 6 pupil, received her award on the last day at Throston before she moves to secondary school.

Mr Atkinson wished Megan luck in her new school and congratulated all of the pupils who got nominated for the award.

He added: “It’s something we do every year and it’s really popular, the pupils really want to win it.

“All of the nominations have had a fantastic year and some have overcome some difficult barriers.

“If we could have gave an award to all of them we would have done and I’m sure the pupils will work just as hard next year.”
