The celebration at Mile Cross Primary School, on Brasier Road, also marked the school’s outstanding Ofsted report, which was given in December.

Hundreds of parents were met by a whole school song, before an afternoon of circus fun, stilt walkers, penalty shoot-outs, performances and balloon making got under way.

Stuart Allen, headteacher at the school, which opened on the site of Norman First School in 2008 after the school system was reorganised, said: “We needed to bring the Mile Cross community together to celebrate what we’ve achieved in the last 10 years and how we can achieve so much more.”

He said the school was fortunate to have such supportive families.

Jess Wing, chair of governors, said it was a “thriving school”.
