A PRIMARY school has planted 150 trees for every pupil in the school.

Knayton Church of England Academy, part of Elevate Multi Academy Trust, is committed to being an eco-school. As part of our work, eco leader Rebecca Niblett and her eco-warriors secured a large donation of trees from the Woodland Trust.

Headteacher Rachael Globe said: "We feel privileged that every child in school got the opportunity to plant a tree on our school grounds. Our children love being outdoors and our forest school sessions; they have a real appreciation for nature. Our current Learning Mission is 'Beneath Our Feet' and this felt like the perfect way to celebrate our learning.We are so proud of our children, they genuinely believe they can transform the world!"

"Our tree planting day was all about educating our children about the natural world and the importance of caring for it. It has also given us the opportunity to develop our forest school area with a variety of trees. We are supporting and raising money for an incredible reforestation charity 'Just One Tree'. They accept donations that allows them to plant trees across the world," added Rebecca Niblett.

Eco Warrior Henry Hall said: "We are trying to make a big difference in the world! Abbie Ryder added: We are very lucky to be able to plant new trees and be outside. "We are going to look after them all," added Edward Black.
