Our children supported the BBC Children In Need Appeal 2021 in superb style. We held a non-uniform day for £1 and the children participated in a number of different CIN related activities within their classes to celebrate the day.
We look forward to announcing the total collected in due course.
As part of the Year 6 Activity Week, the Race for Life 5km event was completed by all Year 6 students, with plenty of fantastic personal causes and commitments made. We were simply blown away by the generosity of our families, as we raised a total of £3500!

The school managed to raise £519.16 for Children in Need this November. This included a fab £40.10 raised by pupils in Hawthorn Class (Rosie, Seri-Ann, Natalia, Olivia and Ruairidh) at a 'Bring and Buy' sale run at break and lunchtime. Thank you everybody!
