Reaching Out within our Country

It is important to us that we develop an understanding that within our own country there are people who need help and support. We believe it is our duty to support others wherever we are able to. 


Christmas Afternoon Tea-25th December 2023

What a great afternoon! It was lovely to welcome members of the local community, from various residential homes and community groups, to come into school and share a festive afternoon tea with our year 5 children. The children sang beautifully for our guests and to see the interaction across generations was delightful. A great afternoon for all. 


Children in Need-17th November 2023

In support of Children in Need, we held a wear something 'yellow and/or spotty' day in school on the 17th November, In worship, we learnt about the work of the Children in Need in charity and how this linked to the Christian value of generosity and the quote from the Bible, 'God loves a cheerful giver'. We raised £228.35 for Children in Need. Thank you to all who supported this. 



British Legion-November 2023

We appreciate the  bravery our soldiers showed, and continue to show, when faced with serving our country in war. Our year 5 children were proactive in selling British Legion merchandise in the run up to Remembrance Day to raise funds to support soldiers and their families who have been affected by war. We raised over £164.86 this year for this fantastic charity. 



October Half Term Charity Challenge!


Before October half term, we were learning about what 'charity' actually means and about the work of some charities whom we support regularly. We learnt about why we held a Macmillan Coffee Morning in school, why we support the local foodbank, what Children in Need is all about and about the Royal British Legion who we support through the Poppy Appeal every year.


This led to the children being challenged to find out about a charity, maybe one they are interested in or have heard about before, maybe one their families know about and support, and to then share this information with their teacher so that the individual classes could vote on which charity to support through whatever ways the children came up with over October half term. We talked lots about how support for a charity could be through donations of money or items, but could also be by donating our time to help in some way or raising awareness of the charity to others. 


It was lovely that every class chose a charity to find out more about and pledge to help. We were also delighted that some children went on to support their classes chosen charity in some way. 


The PowerPoint below shows the different charities chosen to support and what the children who went on to participate in supporting the charity did to help. 


Well done to all who got involved!



Harvest Appeal-11th October 2023

Thank you to all who  donated non perishable items for the local food bank and/or contributions towards the Bishop's Harvest Appeal. as part of our Harvest Festival today. It was lovely to see such generosity shown from our school community towards those in need in the local community and the wider world. 


MacMillan Coffee Morning=22nd September 2023

Whilst some of our own families have experienced support from MacMillan, the work that MacMillan do extends beyond supporting families just within our school or local community. Each year, our year 6 children lead a MacMillan coffee morning, This year we raised £360 for this worthwhile charity! Super job All Saints'.
