Fund-raising and Charity
Our school values of RESPECT, EQUALITY, COURAGE and KINDNESS teach us that our community does not end at the school gates. We raise funds for charity as part of our learning on internationalism, citizenship and PSHE. This also links closely with our learning on British Values: Democracy, Individual Liberty, The Rule of the Law and Mutual Respect.
Fund-raising and Charity Work 2017-18
Some Year 6 children, led by Olivia, organised and ran a bake sale in support of Kings College Hospital as a member of our community received treatment there.

We support the Poppy Appeal every year by selling poppies and poppy themed accessories
