Staff and Children from the partnership schools of Anthony Curton Primary, at vWalpole St Peter, and Tilney All Saints Primary got into the spirit of Halloween by dressing up as scary pets, creatures and animals, to raise money for the RSPCA.

The children were ‘fined’ for dressing up, and raised more than £300 for the animal charity.

There were lots of scary spiders, creepy cats and wicked werewolves prowling the corridors during the day.

Executive head teacher, Dawn Liddle, said: “Our schools are Church schools and as such, we remember the day as All Saints Day, but we also recognise the commercial side of Halloween, and the excitement it causes our children, so we took the opportunity to raise money for this very worthwhile cause.”
