Headteacher Elizabeth Madin said: "We recently had a visit from Jason Sapsford, operations manager for Kier Highways, and Paul Evans and crew from IR Roadlines.

"We enjoyed spying through the fence and windows as they marked up and painted a fabulous track on the playground for our youngest class, Acorns.

"Although we regularly drew a track with chalk, we now have a permanent one.

"Not only is it fun, it helps prevent collisions too, which is always a good thing.

"A little opening ceremony was held with cutting of the ribbon and the children immediately got to work testing it out the track.

"A massive thank you goes to the team for their commitment to work in the community."
