The school came second.

Deputy head Lucy Hodges said: “We are all so thrilled to have been awarded £2,000 from Tesco’s Bags of Help.

“One of our outdoor areas is in need of renovation and we are planning to install a track for the children.

“Thank you so much to Tesco for helping us to fund this exciting project.
