PUPILS are making the most of a new woodland tower and climbing equipment that has been installed in the grounds of Iron Acton Primary School.

Two years of planning, which involved the youngsters, came to fruition when the equipment was put in place - with the help of £10,000 from the Big Lotto Fund and £2,000 from local charity Acton Aid.

Headteacher Mike Riches said: “We are very keen on using our outdoor space. We have a huge field with a forest schools area, growing area and pond which we use to support our curriculum. We have now improved it further with our climbing equipment.

“We are also very keen to challenge all children through their time at our school and have called this latest project 'developing a physical challenge at Iron Acton'. 

“This has been very popular with parents and children and a great thing to show to prospective parents.”

Families will be able to see the equipment at an open day at the school on Tuesday,  October 3, at 1.30pm. Parents who want to attend must register at the school office in advance.
