A LOG cabin has been converted into a safe space to allow teaching staff to give one-to-one support to pupils.

Chetwynde School's Rainbow Room was officially opened last week by primary head boy Wilson Bartlett and primary head girl Mahiya Mohan.

The Rainbow Room has been two years in the planning and has been created thanks to the fundraising efforts of pupils, parents and the school's Friends of Chetwynde group.

The money has been raised through cake sales, craft sales and donations from parents and past pupils.

Annali Bell, the primary school's Special Education Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDco), is delighted with the results of their hard work.

"This has been a work in progress for the last two years and we are extremely proud of what we have finally achieved after all the hard work," she said.

"After lots of thought and consideration, I decided on a log cabin as it would fit perfectly in our beautiful and spacious school grounds and we wanted an area with a calming and relaxing environment to be used for group or one-to-one work, as well as lunchtime clubs and playtimes.

"We have organised numerous fund raising events including The Great Chetwynde Bake Off, Icy Friday and selling home-made crafts at the Christmas Fair.

"This money, along with generous donations from parents and The Friends of Chetwynde, contributed towards the room and furnishings.

"We are extremely lucky at Chetwynde to have such enthusiastic children and we are very grateful for the supportive parents who are always willing to get involved."
