Youngsters attending the school through the lockdown made butterflies to adorn the huge rainbow mural painted by school staff.

The children also added comments to individual butterflies about how they felt and messages to key workers.

Children who have been home learning have also created tributes using everyday items such as bottles, fabric, shells and pebbles.

These will be displayed in the Pride of Brixham gardens on the marina in Brixham.

Deputy head teacher Claire Thompson said: 'I'm overwhelmed with the response we have had and the quality of the tributes. I'm so proud of our children.'

A Pride in Brixham spokesman said: 'What a lovely spectacle.'
