The Toftwood Infant and Junior School Federation family picnic took place immediately after the infant school's race day and saw around 1,300 people enjoy a relaxing afternoon.

A spokesperson for the federation said: 'Parents and carers and other family and friends were invited to join their children for a family picnic on the field, giving families time to spend with their children, chatting and relaxing in the sunshine, away from the distractions of everyday life - including electronic devices.

'The sun shone brightly for us all, and the fields of both schools were awash with deck chairs, picnic blankets and the odd parasol to keep out of the sun.'

The infant school also had its open afternoon following the picnic on Monday July 2, allowing parents and carers to join their children and celebrate their learning.
