A north Norfolk primary school is one of the first to take part in the Prince William Award programme, which helps build character and confidence.

The scheme is specially designed for young children and has been a huge success at Millfield in North Walsham.

One of the Year 4 pupils taking part, Jacob Harding, said he had enjoyed all of the programme, which had become one of the highlights of the youngsters' week.

The programme, which is run by SkillForce, helps build resilience and personal skills with the pupils taking part in various interactive challenges and games every week.

It covers five themes including relationships, personal development, working, communication and environment and the children have individual, partner or team challenges to complete.
