Charity and Community
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.
Chilton Heroes for Charities!
In February 2019, our Year 6 children explored the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations as part of their learning on their 'Champion of Courage' Malala Yousafzai'.
They were so inspired by their research in to gender and educational inequality that they designed and made their own badges which they sold to the school community. The money raised was then donated to the Malala Fund - which works to help girls 'learn and lead'.
We supported the NSPCC Number Day and raised over £700!
And we enjoyed Red Nose Day 2019 doing something funny for money! We raised £400
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. Another pupil, Larisa, also raised £250 for Great Ormond Street through a bake sale at school. Scarlett also completed the Colour Run and raised £85 in the process!
Every year, our Harvest Festival collected 'Pennies 4 Porchlight'. Porchlight is a local charity helping homeless people and vulnerable young people. We also collected food items and donated these to the Salvation Army in Ramsgate.
Key Stage Two collect donations for St Laurence church - during their Christmas and Year 6 Graduation services
We support the Poppy Appeal every year by selling poppies and poppy themed accessories
Every Year, we hold a 'Spotacular' day for Children in Need, raising over £400 on each occasion!
On Friday 23rd March 2018, our Sports Relief Dance-a-thon made a welcome return and we raised £500! We have Comic Relief to look forward to in 2019!
