Pupils at five Newport Pagnell schools are to benefit from £1,000 funding from a Covid ward-based budget.

Lib Dem Jane Carr, who represents Newport Pagnell South, has organised the funding to help local schools as they recover from the pandemic and lockdowns. The money will go towards funding:

> An outside classroom to encourage children to explore the natural world at Giffard Park Primary School

Lib Dem Jane Carr, represents Newport Pagnell South

> Face masks, wipes and other Covid supplies at Ousedale

> More books to help children who have fallen behind with their reading at Green Park, Cedars and Tickford primary schools.

Councillor Carr said: “Our local schools worked so hard throughout the pandemic, never failing to support pupils and their families.

“I’m so thankful to have this money to donate, because I know it will help our schools, and hundreds of local children who have had such a difficult two years.”
