Throughout the year we ensure pupils take on the wider responsibility of fundraising for as many worthy charities as possible. We are selective with choosing a varied range of charities and ensure that pupils learn about and are aware of the work these charitable organisations do.
Taking part in charitable activities does not only benefit the charity itself but is also important in developing a sense of citizenship in our pupils – in terms of individual engagement, participation in collective school activities, and engendering a broader sense of social responsibility.
So far this year, we have raised money for the following:
- Royal British Legion
- Children in Need
- Young Minds
We also have more fundraising dates in the diary planned with the next one being ‘Save the Children’. Our Year 5 class are also bringing in food items to make up food parcels for a local homeless charity.
In addition to fundraising, pupils learn about the work carried out by these and other significant charities.
