Headteacher Kevin Watts said: "With over 400 primary schools in Essex, to get to this stage and represent Uttlesford District is an immense achievement.

"We are incredibly proud of the pupils who took part in another sporting success at Great Dunmow Primary School."

*Dunmow under-13s were convincing winners over Intersports in the Spring Plate.
