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.
