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.
Children In Need – 13th November 2020
This year our School Parliament decided to have a general non uniform day rather than a theme as they didn't want anyone to feel left out if their parents couldn't get anything due to Covid-19 restrictions. There were still plenty of Pudsey's and spots around!
The School Parliament also decided to hold a decorate a Pudsey headband for an additional 50p donation to help raise more money.
Well done to our School Parliament and Miss Kimpton for organising a great day!
