A mum has raised over £320 to help improve the sensory areas at her son’s primary school for pupils with special educational needs.  

Hayley Scarff held a bake sale with a raffle from her home in St Neots to buy equipment for the specialist areas at Middlefield Primary Academy.  

Her eldest son Jamie attends the school and is currently undergoing assessments for special educational needs. 

And the monies raised will help him, and other children there with similar needs.  

Hayley said: “I couldn’t believe how much the event raised – I'm so grateful to everyone who helped and came along to support us.  

“We want these areas to be where the children can go when they need to remove themselves from situations they find overwhelming. 

“Among the items we want to buy include sensory sequin boards and special wobble cushions that help children concentrate for activities like reading.” 

Family, friends and those with connections to the school were among those who supported the event, which was held last Saturday (October 21) and raised £322.40.
