Georgina Mullhall, headteacher at the school, said: ‘We are working to promote a healthy lifestyle at the school.

‘We understand that not all children can walk to school, so where we set off from Stokes Bay is an ideal place and it also reduces cars for residents around the school.

‘The pupils are taking part in a lot of cross-curricular activities throughout the day.’
