It was celebration time at Loscoe Primary School as staff and pupils marked its tenth year since moving into new facilities.

Back in 2003 the 115 pupils moved out of its former 108-year-old Loscoe Denby Lane premises into a freshly built new home at Church View. Now with 160 youngsters, the school celebrated by baking birthday cakes in its recently installed kitchen pod area - being used to provide hot lunchtime meals. The pupils also had a sing-along and special assembly to mark the occasion. Head teacher Sarah Tew said: “It’s a beautiful building and we have lovely children and parents - we are very lucky - so we thought that was worth celebrating.”
