With 20 eager pupils representing the school, including Mrs. Lisa Corby, School Improvement Lead from 鶹ýAV, the ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 1st marked the official launch of the new facility. 

Accompanying Mrs. Corby were Mrs. Nicholls, the EYFS Lead, and Mrs. Austen & Miss Attree, Teaching Assistants, who joined in the celebration.

The newly unveiled play area features a range of exciting features, including a sand pit, water wall, play builder engineering set, storytelling chairs, giant chalkboard, and a turf floor. These additions reflect the school's commitment to enhancing outdoor spaces to facilitate pupil’s learning and development.
