We support one major charity at a time, usually for a period of two years.
This gives us the opportunity to develop a relationship with the charity and for our children to develop an understanding of how the money we raise is going to be used. A number of other charities are supported during the course of the year.
The charities team is led by members of school staff, however the team of Year 6 Charity Monitors work hard to encourage all the children and staff to support the events that happen throughout the year. Before each fundraising event the Charity Monitors address their peers in assembly.
We help charities such as Jeans for Genes, Royal British Legion, Norwood and Brixton Foodbank Appeal, Red Nose Day, Christmas Jumper Day, MacMillan Coffee Morning, and Children in Need amongst many others to raise awareness for their good works.
Our current school charity is 'Place2Be'. Money is raised through regular home clothes days as well as termly charity cake sales.
Our current school charity is Place2Be, a national children's mental health organisation.
