Pupils and staff at Hemingford Grey Primary School have been presented with a coveted Green Flag Award.

The award, the school’s second, ­recognises green initiatives, which are driven by a pupil-led Eco Committee. Green Flags are awarded for two years, after which schools have to re-apply.

The school’s grounds team leader, Karen Bowtell, said: “I am very proud of the continued commitment, support and hard work we have received from ­children, staff and parents at the school.

“Particular thanks must go to the Eco Committee and the Bike Crew as it is very hard to get a Green Flag and a lot of commitment and hard work is needed to keep it.”

The school is planning to start work on a new outside area, which will include an allotment and greenhouse.
