Youngsters lend a hand as school builds for future
A rural primary school will be able to replace its temporary classrooms for the first time in 40 years thanks to a new extension.
Work has begun at Rauceby Church of England Primary School, near Sleaford, after it secured funding from central government.
Builders are creating a new classroom for reception and Year 1 children, as well as making other alterations around the school and work is due to be finished by January.
It was awarded £400,000 to begin the restructure and extension of the existing site.

Headteacher Richard Thomson has been working at the school for eight years and said: "We're really looking forward to the work being completed. The new classrooms will be a fantastic and much-needed addition.
"We're really glad we can reinstate the bell tower as the front of house for the school where the reception will be moved to and the main body of the school is also being restructured.
"We will have more space for paperwork and teaching resources too which we were desperate for."
The school has an intake of 182 students and caters for one class per year group.
In addition to six full-time permanent staff and two part-time teaching staff, they have 11 members of support staff, three working in reception, seven with Key Stage One and Two. There is also part-time teacher support for music and swimming.
