A bunch of bright primary school pupils have been running their own business in the playground.

The group of youngsters picked from Calverton Primary School’s Gifted and Talented programme have been working on a project to set up their own Tuck Shop to sell healthy, nutritious food to their peers at break times.

The pupils have been working with Sapphire Grey from Junior Enterprise 360 Project, a pilot scheme to embed enterprise in primary school curriculums which has been trialled at six schools in east London including Winsor Primary in Beckton.

The shop, called “Tuck In”, was officially launched by her on Tuesday May 7 at the school in King George Avenue, Custom House and the children were involved in every stage of its development from marketing, to ordering stock, to managing others.
