Charitable Work

We make it a priority to raise funds for charitable causes throughout the school year.


We endeavour to support these charitable causes wherever, whenever and however we can.  


Our children and families are always keen to support us in helping others who are perhaps less fortunate than ourselves for, as Jesus taught us:


'It is more blessed to give than to receive'

Acts 20:35

πŸ’š We are asking for a minimum donation of £1 per child - or why not sponsor your child to complete their walk and ask friends and families to contribute to this appeal too?
πŸ’š This will be a non-uniform day in school, but please remember that children will need to wear clothing (and footwear) that is suitable for the weather, and for walking!
