Boxes packed with donations were delivered by senior leader Gareth Webb to the Wyre Forest Foodbank at Franche Community Church on the last day of term.

Jacqui Elwis, executive headteacher, said: “These are tough times and it’s been amazing to see the children arriving at school with their contributions and understanding that Christmas is about helping each other and giving as well as receiving.”
