A Clevedon supermarket has donated fresh fruit to a town primary school to help students with their exams.

Asda, in Tweed Road, donated a crate of its fruit, including satsumas and apples, to year six pupils at Mary Elton Primary School in Holland Road, to help them out with their SATS.

The fresh produce was given to students so they could all enjoy a healthy breakfast in the morning before exams started and a snack to keep them focused and prepared throughout the day.

Year six students from schools across the country have been undertaking the exams, also known as Statutory Assessment Tests, which challenge 10-11-year-olds on their ability in a range of subjects including grammar, spelling, punctuation, reading and maths.
