Charity Dates
We are committed to teaching our pupils that they have a social responsibility to help others who are not as fortunate as themselves. As a school community we agreed that we would support 1 charity per half term of the academic year. We didn’t celebrate an particular charity event last half term so we are proposing two charities days for this half term.
Friday 16th November - Children In Need
Friday 14th December - Christmas Jumper Day
We will send further information nearer to the above dates.
