We are pleased to have provided 60 sets of rainwear for pupils at St Edmund's Academy in Kings Lynn, so they can enjoy Forest School classes, whatever the weather.

Darren Reeve, Commercial and Business Development Manager, and Kim Osborn, Trainee Estimator, visited the school so the pupils could show off their new attire and woodland activities. We have undertaken a number of educational projects with the school who will move into the new £8.5m Greenpark Academy and Nursery, which our site team are constructing as part of Norfolk County Council's Construction Framework Agreement.

Headteacher, Jill Graver, said: "Our experienced forest school leader, Nicola Murray-Woods, has been teaching the children about respecting nature while learning valuable life skills in the great outdoors. We are very grateful to Cocksedge for providing the new waterproof suits and wellies, enabling our pupils to access Forest School whatever the weather.

Darren Reeve added: "As a regional contractor we are always pleased to assist local communities in the areas where we are working. The Forest School helps the pupils with social interaction and problem solving in the great outdoors. Hopefully, the rainwear will allow the children to enjoy the activities in all weathers, and some of the lessons learnt will help when they move into the larger school, which is on track for completion in the summer."
