Autumn 2023 Charity Update

Our school is proud to have strong links with the local and wider global community. Throughout the academic year pupils, parents and staff participate in a number of fundraising initiatives to support a range of registered uk charities.

As a school we believe it is of great importance for children to be involved in charity work. Charity and fundraising days at school are an opportunity for children to learn about important causes and issues that affect the world around them. Many pupils look forward to these days and enjoy taking part in fundraising activities in addition to highlighting important causes.
