Building work has begun to expand a village school and parents, teachers and pupils are getting on board to raise money for equipment for it.

Work has begun to build a new classroom, library and teaching room as the first stage of a £150,000 building project at Morton Primary School.

The building work is due to be completed in August in time for the new school year in September 2013.

The expansion work is a Lincolnshire County Council project with Langwiths builders to provide a sixth teaching classroom for the expanding school.

The new classroom with toilets would enable the school to take on a further 30 children.

Headteacher George Trafford said the school is looking to kick on after receiving a good rating at its recent Ofsted inspection.

Mr Trafford said: “The inspector recognised our school as one that has improved quickly and understands how to progress still further.”

Mr Trafford said the summer fair will help the school continue to improve.

He said: “Our forthcoming Parents Teacher Association Summer Fair and Car Boot is fundraising for all the additional items for our new classroom and library.

“We would like to purchase a number of computers and other resources.”

This year the summer fair is being combined with a grand car boot sale on June 15 from 10am to 2pm.

Due to demand for pitches the event will be held on the playing field at the school.

There will be bouncy castles, traditional games, the school’s biggest ever tombola, raffle and double grill barbecue and refreshment stalls.

The PTA are inviting children and parents to dust off their cake tins and enter Morton’s Great British Bake Off.

All the children need to do is bake a set of cupcakes of their taste and design for the chance to win a prize.

Bookings for pitches are being taken from tomorrow, £5 in advance £6 on the day. Gates will open at 9am for car booters to set up.

To book a place at the car boot call the school on 01778 570389.
