Cheques for £2,805 each were presented by the vicar, the Rev Preb Maureen Hobbs, at the family service in Church on December 1 – during which the school choir sang.

The school plans to buy a large interactive white board. The range of Acorns services for children and families in time of need was explained and their cash will go towards £7.5m annual costs.
