Headteacher James Berry and PTA Vice Chair Katy Hamilton welcomed Steve Pryor and Sian How from The Harpenden Trust to officially open the new playground and hand over a commemorative plaque.

Mr Berry said the playground facilities – which include a new climbing frame, water feature and music zone – have been a “game-changing” addition to the school, with children in the reception and nursery classes now able to enjoy a range of stimulating activities while they learn together outside.
