Albury Primary School's new cedar cabin and outdoor learning zone were officially opened by MP Sir Oliver Heald.

The Conservative member for North East Herts met some of his youngest constituents, their parents, staff and governors.

He learned about their expansion project and listened to a specially composed song, performed by pupils.

Head Sarah Stevens said on Friday (June 11): "Today was the culmination of several hard months of fundraising, bid writing and planning.

"Sir Oliver was well received and the children had worked hard to perform a song about children at Albury school. He very much agreed that the mix of old and new worked well and that the new area was an inspiring place for children to learn."

The school has provided education for children of the village and surrounding areas since it was built in 1850. Recently, with the introduction of provision for two-year-olds, it has been growing rapidly and more space was needed.

"This outside cabin and all-purpose outside learning zone will mean the school will continue to grow and the children within it to thrive," said Sarah.

"The outdoor learning zone has many areas dedicated for planting and additional funding was provided by the governors, friends of the school and children and adult mental health services. Now at Albury, we're quite literally growing plants and growing minds!"
