The extension provides additional learning space for the children, as well as meaning they can run a number of clubs including a breakfast club.

It has also seen a new staff room built upstairs after a mezzanine floor was put in.

Headteacher Sue Campbell said: “This extension has let us do so many things that we couldn’t do before such as cookery classes and a breakfast club.

“We can now run lunchtime clubs and there is a staff room for our 30 staff members.

“We had explored it before with the architect and managed it financially by being in tight control of the school budget.

“We’ve got 180 pupils here and this will benefit all of them.”

The school became a sponsored academy in October 2014 as part of the Peterborough Diocese Education Trust (PDET).
