A PRIMARY school is embracing a summer term full of events with help from a local house builder.

Wantage Primary Academy opened in 2020 on the Fullers Meadow development and hasn’t been able to host any school events until this term due to the pandemic.

With the school right on Cala Home’s doorstep, the housebuilder has been eager to support its staff and pupils.

The housebuilder has donated a gazebo and raffle prizes worth more than £200 to support the upcoming sports days, fairs and Jubilee celebrations.

Emily, chair of the PTA at Wantage Primary Academy, said: “This is an exciting time for us as we begin to embrace day-to-day school life after the pandemic. We’re continually looking for funds to help us grow our community so that our children have the best experience.

“We’ve got big plans and look forward to working closely with Cala in the future.”

Stala Thomson, sales and marketing director at Cala Homes (Chiltern), said: “Wantage Primary Academy plays a vital role within our Fullers Meadow community. Located in the heart of the development, families that move to Fullers Meadow are likely to enrol their young children into the academy.

“That’s why we’re committed to helping the school raise the funds that they need to offer the experience that their pupils deserve. We hope the staff and pupils have a wonderful time at their events this term.”
