The school values the community and our pupils are taught early on the importance of being actively involved in community events. Our choir sing annually in the local community and residential homes during the festive season.
In addition, the school chooses one child-focused charity to sponsor each year. All fundraising activity including a whole school Christmas display and collections after School Productions and Church Services are given to our chosen charity.
This year, the school is proud to support Global’z Make Some Noise.
This year the children also raised money for Red Nose Day this term by swapping an item of uniform for something red. The children also learned about the purpose and aims of this charity.
We continue to support Children in Need – this year with a doughnut sale!
As part of our Harvest celebration the children brought in items to donate to the Purley Food Hub – a fabulous local charity which helps so many families in need.
Year 5 and 6’s Entrepreneurs Day involved the children organising and costing their own stalls in order to raise money for Cancer Research.
The children also managed to raise money for the NSPCC and raised over £1,000. The infants took part in a Dance-a-thon where they danced for 5 minutes every hour! The children had great fun and the dance moved were fantastic! The Juniors were took part in a range of activities. On Monday, they had a fantastic hockey session with Mr Fairchild, who teaches hockey to 8-14 year olds on the weekend for Trinity Mid-Whitgifians. On Tuesday, Mr Drury came in to teach the children some Taekwondo moves. On Wednesday, the children experienced a yoga lesson by Dimi from Feel Good Yoga. On Thursday, they learned a dance routine by Jo, a professional dancer who teaches PE and dance at other schools and on Friday, Ms Radford took charge and led a circuit training session.
