Headteacher Katie Butler said: “We were recently touched with the sad news of a child that could have used this charity to support them in their time of need. We hope this will help the charity to help children when they really need support.”

The following week, the school had the honour of leading a procession at Ipswich Sports Club of all teams for the Quadkids inter-school sports competition an honour awarded thanks to Year Six pupil, Martha, winning the Suffolk School Games banner competition.

Children competed in running, jumping and throwing competition.

Mrs Butler said it gave pupils a chance to encourage each other and meet friends from other schools.
