A Liverpool primary school teacher is the first in the UK to receive a new national award after inspiring his pupils to be more active, with Active Kids Do Better.

Jay Clarke from Rudston Primary School received the Gold Active Teacher award at a special event in Manchester last week. Presented by Olympic athletes Laura Weightman and Danny Talbot, the award recognised Jay’s involvement with Active Kids Do Better– a Nike and Discovery Education programme to increase kids’ movement and play throughout the school day.
