A school in Nailsea has been given a £250 grant to repair its pond.
Kingshill Church School, in Pound Lane, has been given a watermark award from Wessex Water.
The awards are given out to encourage outdoor classrooms, wildlife and science gardens.
Sue Goodland, Wessex Water’s education officer, said: “More schools than ever are bringing the local environment into their school curriculum and this often means additional expense to adapt a school yard or play area.”
Headteacher Jan Thomson said: “We want to establish a wildflower area to attract butterflies, bees and insects.
You may also want to watch:
“Our plan is to transform the inner courtyard which has become very overgrown and clear the pond which is strangled by bamboo.
“We will then plant the area with insect loving plants. We are delighted to begin our new year term with this award.”
