It is important to us that our children learn to grow into active responsible adults.
Involvement in fundraising activities is motivating and fun for young children and we actively support many charities throughout the school calendar giving our pupils the opportunity to understand about important issues affecting our world.
We are very proud, and lucky, to have a generous school community and we hope the resulting impact of this is that all our children will grow up to feel good about fundraising.
Place2Be Children's Mental Health Charity
On Wednesday 5th February, school held a 'Be Bright, Be Brave' well-being day to support the children's mental health charity 'Place2Be'.
As well as raising awareness throughout school, and talking openly about our fears and moments of bravery, we were able to make a generous contribution to support the ongoing work of this important charity.

Australian Bush Fire Appeal
The Australian Bush Fires have affected the lives, homes, and billions of animals across the country. As a school, we wanted to raise money for this cause to support the efforts of so many charities working tirelessly during the devastation. We have split all proceeds between two charities; WWF (World Wildlife Fund) and WIRES ( Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service).
Total amount raised £220
Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian international relief organisation. Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. They ship these simple gifts outside the United Kingdom to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease.
Total amount of boxes sent: 42
