Primary school children in Clevedon have featured in a national magazine.

Mary Elton Primary School pupils have appeared in the STEM Learning magazine in recognition of their work in four key subjects – science, technology, engineering and maths.

The article was written by assistant headteacher Steve Thurgur, and focused on developing hedgehog corridors across the country by ensuring gardens have gaps in fences for the animals to fit through.

Headteacher Dean Hudd said: “Our school is passionate about learning and we are thrilled to see our brilliant work in science, technology, engineering and maths given such prominence.”

Students have also worked with businesses to create wheelchairs and safari lodges.

They also recently hosted a science summit which saw pupils from across Somerset attend to discuss major issues.
