The school also received a 'Special Achievement Award' during the summer holidays fromDistington in Bloom’ for recognition of our successful school garden. We would like to thank our gardeners who regularly come into school (and during the school holidays) to work alongside the children. We have had an amazing crop this year of sweetcorn, tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers, peas, rhubarb and much more which the School Council have sold to raise funds which will go directly to benefit the children.
