Stacey McCraith, deputy headteacher at Elsenham Primary School, said: "At Elsenham Primary School, we aim to cover a wide range of important topics and fun activities as part of our outdoor learning, so it’s brilliant to receive the gardening kits.

"This will help to teach the children effectively, but also to demonstrate the impact that gardening can have."

Gemma Bannister, head of sales at Dandara Eastern, said: "We’re pleased to provide resources to help pupils learn about the importance of gardening."
