We support several charities. Each class has adopted a charity and works to raise awareness and funds. We also take part in annual and bi-annual national charitable events, such as Comic Relief, Fairtrade Fortnight and Children in Need.
Following the terrible floods to our local area last year, a Class 5 pupil wrote a letter to Mrs Chadwick suggesting ideas to raise money and support those with damaged houses and belongings. Over £180 was raised through a toy sale (children brought in their old toys to sell) and a non-uniform day.
