Charities

The pupils make a very strong contribution to their own community and keenly support a range of charities. 

(Ofsted November 2010)

The children have a keen sense of responsibility and have a desire to support those in need or less fortunate than themselves.  They are quick to come up with imaginative fund-raising ideas and are encouraged to do so.  Recent fund raising activities have been:

  • an art exhibition organised by a year one child and dress as your hero day.

We have very close links with The Lunchbowl Network, a charity supporting orphans in the Kenyan slum of Kibera. 

Every year, each house agrees on a charity to support  and the children organise a wide range of events to raise funds for their charities.
