Parent Diana Heyes said: “A member of staff, Mrs Weldon, bumped into him yesterday and asked him if he’d pop in, and he did.”

Another parent wrote on Facebook: “He was really nice taking the time to talk to a lot of the children and posing for photos, signing autographs, was there quite a while and made the children very happy indeed.”
