Manju Johal is headteacher at the Brocket Road school, which caters for children aged two-and-a-half to five.

She said the event on Friday October 6 went brilliantly for the youngsters.

“In total we raised �33 from all the children paying �1 to wear their jeans, and all the children loved it, they were really excited,” she said.
