Eyebrows were raised last week when Chris Hamriding Estate Agents staff were seen at Buglawton Primary School.
But fears of the popular school being put up for sale were quickly put to bed when it was found the Congleton estate agents were just there to make a film.
“We have been looking at ways to let our parents – and prospective parents – see our school despite the current lockdown,” deputy headteacher Richard Jervis said.
“Our pupils are the ambassadors and experts of what Buglawton is all about, but with the majority learning remotely, we needed the help of local professionals.”
Estate agents Chris Hamriding and Pete Hutchins stepped in to film the school the same way they do their regular popular viewings, including scenic aerial footage using their drone.
They describe the school as having a “huge back garden” and coming with “35 well trained staff”, talking about the outside play area before going indoors to enjoy the doubtless deceptively spacious accommodation.
Mr Jervis said: “We are very grateful for the time and effort they spent in putting this together.
“As well as parents having the opportunity to view, pupils have enjoyed seeing their school again, too.”
The short film is available to watch via vimeo.com searching for “Buglawton Primary School”.
The film will be used as a writing stimulus for the pupils on their return to school next month.
