Parents and pupils had baked and bought an array of cakes to raise money to fight cancer. 

The MP had previously met with pupils via Teams, but she was able to meet the pupils in person and enjoy a guided tour of the school in Longstone Avenue.

Sarah Bolt, headteacher said: "After a long period of having no parents or visitors being welcomed into schools, this was a wonderful opportunity for the school community to come together."
