Calder House school pupils celebrate overcoming lockdown 'with help from their friends'
Pupils, teachers and families of Calder House near, Colerne in Wiltshire, have celebrated overcoming difficulties during lockdown by recording a socially distant version of 'With A Little Help From My Friends'.

The school's 47 children, who all have specific learning difficulties, followed personal timetables tailored to their needs, and received remedial support from home.

"We have carried on learning in many ways. One of the things that lockdown has taught us is that we can get through almost anything if we all pull together," said the school's Managing Director.
