The school has applied to the Aviva Community Grant and need public votes to be successful with this bid.

The (PTA) are responsible for helping the school with a number of small projects and equipment to enhance the children’s learning experiences.

Lindsay Apps, secretary of Frisby PTA said: “We want to do something big, something that will make a difference to the way our children learn and give them educational experience they can’t get inside the classroom.

“We are proposing to develop an unused pond and its surrounding area of woodland, making the pond safe and developing the surrounding area into a sensory garden and woodland trail.

“Children don’t just learn by listening, they need to see, touch, smell, experiment, explore and this new area will give them exactly that.”
