Generous recyclers have made a dream come true for staff and pupils at Wraysbury Primary School by getting them a £681.29 grant for an outdoor learning area.

People across the Royal Borough earn points by recycling their paper, plastic bottles, cardboard and metal cans. 

Thanks to the Greenredeem recycling rewards company this can be turned into money for schools.

Between July, 2017 and January, 2018 residents donated 376,596 'Greenredeem points' to Wraysbury Primary School - the equivalent to 75 tonnes of recycling or 4,184 recycling bins.

As they received the most amount of points, the school was given the grant to develop an outside area to ensure all available space can be used as an opportunity for learning.

Cllr Jesse Grey, the Royal Borough's cabinet member for environmental services joined headteacher Alison Fox and Greenredeem's contract manager Melanie Penfold to celebrate the grant

Mrs Fox said: "We are absolutely thrilled to be awarded this grant. 

"By developing the school grounds and extending the classroom to the outside, children will be free to explore and learn in their own learning styles."

There are currently seven new schools that have joined the latest phase of the Greenredeem School Donations Scheme.
