TODDLERS are getting used to school life at a rural primary.

The Sandiway Toddler Group meets at 10am every Friday during term time to enjoy activities including games, toys and craft activities followed by refreshments.

The group, organised by Emily Parker and Lona Gavins, is fully supported by the Norley Road school and provides a strong link with the local community.

Children attending the group are aged from one month up to four years old.

Emily said: “It is a lovely opportunity for local toddlers’ parents to get to know other parents and for their children to begin socialising with one another.

“We are fortunate to be able to offer the space and facilities and are made to feel very welcome by the school itself. Sandiway Primary School prides itself on community links.”

The toddler group is open to all and anyone wishing to join should ring Lona on 01606 888669.

The school is also celebrating after gaining ActiveMark status for a third consecutive year in recognition if its high standards in PE.

Acting headteacher Mair Strawbridge said: “It is the third year running we have achieved this status and are very proud of this.

“PE is a passion of ours as a school and we ensure we exceed the recommended two hours per week per child as often as possible.”
