Our Community Work
The school is committed to being part of the community and helping children understand what being a community means. Our first event was our:
Community Christmas Meal - we ran a Community Christmas Meal for homeless and elderly people from our community on 3 Jan 2018 - children, staff, parents and volunteers provided a 3 course meal, entertainment and gifts for our guests. It was an AMAZING event, with everyone working so well together, fantastic children who prepared, served, waited on and chatted with our guests. 10 members of our choir sang, Roy and Ella from NAF (Northfield Arts Forum) sang too and we had prize bingo!
Thank you to everyone for their superb support, including children, parents and staff; Janet from the Grosvenor Centre, O2, Iceland, Costa Coffee and Starbucks - great support from you all.
We look forward to more community support events in the near future.

After counting all money raised from different activities, our amazing school has raised £1200 to support our local community. We are looking to create a charity and community fund from January. Keep looking here for updates throughout 2018 on fundraising, progress on becoming a charity and future community events.
The children in school, with help from some adults, have managed to raise around £1000 in 3 months - from raffles, bag packing, donation buckets, cake sales, non-uniform day and more. We have also had lots of donations of food and toiletries/ sanitary and other items, with have been sorted in to 'gift bags' for our guests to take away with them! THANK YOU for all your help and support. We will report back with how the meal went, photos, and how we have spent some of the money.
We are also looking at sending some of the money over to Chloe in India so as they can buy some gifts for the orphans in the New Year.
