The wildlife garden, that has proved to be a big hit with pupils, features willow sculptures and a bug hotel.

Headteacher Sue Turner said:

“The children have been really involved in creating the garden and they have enjoyed learning about different insects.

“We hope the garden will continue to grow and encourage more wildlife into the area.”
