Palram DPL Ltd, a plastic fabrication company based in Newton Aycliffe, has donated Perspex screens to Woodham Academy.

The transparent dividers allow teachers to see their students, and employees to see their co-workers in a safe way that adheres to new social distancing practices. The screens have been used in the school’s reception and IT departments.

Andrew Bell, Headteacher, said “myself and the staff are very grateful to Palram for their generosity and is another example of excellent community support in the town”.
