All 22 students from the Backwell primary school took part in the production, which was performed in front of teachers, friends and family and was followed by a leavers’ supper.

The show was part of a programme of activities arranged for the pupils who will be moving up to secondary school in September.

The children were praised for their confidence and professionalism on stage.

Headteacher Lesley Barton said: “The Romeo and Juliet performance was outstanding and each child played a special part in bringing the story to life.
