This enabled Pentagon Play to replace the often muddy grass area with artificial grass.

New equipment including a climbing frame was added.

The launch event included a dance performed by the children for visitors who included parents, governors and local councillors.

The school’s headteacher Cazz Colmer said: “I am delighted with the new Outdoor Learning Environment which will enable the children to enjoy their learning and develop their physical and creative play.
