The contest took place at St Joseph’s Primary School as part of a week of events to raise funds for Sport Relief.
Year six pupils overcame a team made up of teachers and teaching assistants by a score of 2-1.
Year five pupils also held the teachers to a draw in their fixture.
Some 35 children from year six also took part in a ‘beat the goalie’ contest during a lunchtime break, with some managing to score past the goalkeeper.
The whole school also took part in a fancy-dress day during Sports Relief week, wearing sporting-themed clothes.
The school raised £169 for the charity.
St Joseph’s Primary School PE coordinator Amanda Turner said that the pupils worked ‘super hard’ to put on the events for Sport Relief and it turned out to be a ‘great week’.
