Tudor Primary School deputy headteacher Emma Ince said she was thrilled to see the school’s new playground after what used to be more of a mud bath than a safe area for children was replaced.
Earlier in the year the Free Press showed pictures of the muddy mess where the children were having to play.
The school was chosen by Tesco customers to receive a £12,000 grant to replace the mud with an artificial surface.
The school council, made up of Year 6 pupils, also decided to spend some of the money on new outdoor toys and games.
The school was also supported by contributions from the locality budgets of Suffolk county councillors John Sayers and Colin Spence.
