Ms Shooter, who is preparing for the school’s annual sports day, added: “It was really lovely for someone else to come in and encourage the children to do their best.
“I think the key is that the children really enjoy sport and they are hopefully going to want to carry on doing sporting activities later on in their life.”
An estimated three million students took part in the week, which is designed to persuade young people to engage with sport.
