The 54-year-old trained in PE at the Chelsea School of Human Movement in Sussex and has been in charge at Oldfield Primary School for 11 years.

The Ascot and Maidenhead School Sport Partnership (SSP) handed him with the award at a presentation evening.

Emma Fitzgerald from the SSP said Mr Jarrett has led Oldfield to success on the pitch and acts as an advisor to the partnership.

Mr Jarrett said the school is working hard to continue the positive impact created by last year's London Olympics.

The former Burford School teacher said: "Our job is to keep the legacy going so children do not forget and continue to participate in sport. That's always been our goal."

He added: "At Oldfield we run lots of teams.

"Any child in year six who wants to play for a team will play for a team."
