Our Community Work
The school is committed to being part of the community and helping children understand what being a community means. We are supporting the charity, Bellfield Community Support Trust Fund - a charity set up to support the local community in as many ways as possible - from supporting families in crisis to organising events for local elderly and homeless - please contact Mr Attwood, Mrs Pearshouse, Mrs Hall, Mrs Williams or Mrs Shuttleworth.
Christmas Meal 3.1.20
34 children gave up their day (over 6 hours) during the holidays to prepare and serve a 3 course Christmas dinner for 50 elderly/ lonely people from our local community. The children prepared the food, served the food and drinks, cleared up, washed & tidied up and entertained our guests. We even played 'bingo'!
It was a fantastic day for all involved.
Thank you also to all the adults that supported the day and planning.

Christmas Bag Packing in Iceland - 7 children packed shopping for customers in Iceland for a few hours on Thursday 5/12/19 - raising over £160! They were polite and very good at packing!

EASTER RAFFLE - thank you to the Northfield Shopping Centre, their shops and OneStop for donating prizes to the BCSTF raffle! There were a lot of prizes, drawn on 12.4.19. Thank you for buying tickets.
The school supported them in doing another Christmas meal for local elderly and lonely people (2.1.19) - the children who came and supported (22 of them) prepared the food, served the 3 courses, took plates, kept the guests topped up with drinks, chatted with the guests and played bingo with them! Some of the school choir came in too - to sing Christmas songs with them! It was a brilliant day, with lots of compliments from our guests about the attention they received and how great the children were :-)
The CHOIR visits Ash Grove Nursing Home
& Shenley Seniors at Christmas!
The choir practised hard to deliver some wonderful Christmas cheer to our elderly neighbours - which was enjoyed by everyone! What a brilliant set of children :-)
Community Christmas Meal 2018 - 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.
