Cale Green Primary School beat over 200 schools in the final of the Stockport Young Entrepreneurs of the Year competition.

Pupils ran a company called First Aid Kids, producing an innovative app to help children and adults with first aid linked to a website where users of the app could donate

They received their trophy from Alice Webb, Director of BBC Children’s, who described their efforts as “very impressive”.

Runners-up were Alexandra Park Primary School.

The best trade stand at the final, voted for by other children at the event, was Queensgate Primary School, who set up a business called Bee Strong making bee-friendly products in aid of the We Love Manchester charity.

The climax, in front of over 500 people at Stockport Town Hall, was in the style of the Dragons’ Den.

The children ran trade stands displaying their products with the school’s business links acting as ‘Dragons’ interviewing and judging them on criteria such as originality of design.

Councillor Dean Fitzpatrick, Cabinet Member for Education, said: “It’s great to see so many of our pupils getting involved and I see a bright future for all of our Stockport pupils.”
