Euan Simpson, Jake Plumridge, Scarlett Insley, who are seven, and Kiera Pringle, six from Field Infants school in Ilkeston have become young ambassadors for the Erewash School Sport Partnership.

A quartet of youngsters from an Ilkeston school joined more than 120 pupils across the borough to promote the value of healthy living and sport.

Field House Infant School, of Lower Whitworth Road, have teamed up with 29 schools to become ambassadors for the Erewash School Sport Partnership, which forms a wider group of 46 schools working together to develop PE and sport opportunities.

Euan Simpson, Jake Plumridge and Scarlett Insley, who are seven, and Kiera Pringle, six, fomr Field House, have been selected as ambassadors for the school.

Euan said he was enjoying his elected role and had been learning about the winter Olympics and Commonwealth Games, which will be happening in Glasgow this year.

He added: “We have got to think of some sports that we would like to do in our playground and how we can get everyone involved.”

The youngsters will also lead assemblies and come up with ideas to spread the sporting message across Erewash.

Head teacher of the school, Denise Wells, said she was proud of the ambassadors who she hopes will inspire friends with ideas.

She added: “This scheme is helping us to raise the standard of sport for the children, who are all enthusiastic about their new roles and will do a fantastic job.”

The Partnership has been highly successful increasing involvement in P.E from 68 per cent to almost 90 per cent of five to 16-year-olds.
