As another boost, the school will receive bushes and plants as reward for achieving level three in the RHS campaign for school gardening. Many fruit bushes are already in place.

Bulbs are growing in the school grounds and new nest boxes are becoming inhabited. Pupils took part in the recent Big Birdwatch.

Teacher Mrs Newsome said: “The school is really excited about its new venture.”
