Headteacher Bev Theobald said: “We are very grateful for County Broadband and Usborne Books to support us during such challenging times for staff, pupils and families. It’s the perfect present ahead of the summer holidays. The children were very excited and it’s been great watching them dive straight into them."

Looking after your Mental Health, Miss Molly’s School of Kindness, Write Your Own Story Book and How Your Body Works are among the donated books.
