Macmillan Day was a non school uniform day where both children and staff wore green to represent the charity. School Council held a cake stall at playtime to also raise money for the charity.

The Poppy Appeal was around Remembrance Day and we all dressed in red for the day to Remember those who died in the war. We also sold poppies and other merchandise for a week. We all took part in a Remembrance service and a Messy Church on Remembrance, where our work was displayed in the main corridor.

The Firefighters charity was chosen as we as a school wanted to support our wider community and have done for many years. Each child was given a bag and and many donated old clothes to the charity.
£63.85 for both Children in Need and the NSPCC
Children in Need is a event we take place in every year, but this year we combined it with the NSPCC because of Anti Bullying week. School Council wanted to raise money for NSPCC and therefore we dressed in our pyjamas. School Council also held a fabulous friend competition and a poem competition for the whole school. The winners were given their certificates in Celebration Assembly.
