Parents of pupils at Reepham Primary School will literally go 'above and beyond' for the cause of outdoor education.
Ten parents are planning to attempt a 'wing walk', strapped to the top of a 1940s biplane zooming through the sky at up to 135mph.
Kate King, the school's outdoor learning teacher, said: “We are putting our children’s well-being first and offering them a unique experience in which they can thrive.
"After such a challenging year in education, they need it more than anyone.
"When children are outside, they have more freedom to express themselves as it is a bigger space and they can be noisier and move about, in a non-judgemental environment.

"This allows them to feel confident and happier and can boost their self-esteem.”
Six parents are also planning to run this year's London Marathon to fundraise for the project, and there will be a 'mini-marathon' for pupils.
