This page is dedicated to our young citizens. These are children who demonstrate our school values both within the academy and the local community.
Alice and Sophia in Year 4 were an inspiration to our whole school when they decided to raise money for charity. The girls have written about their experience.
We decided to make Christmas cards to sell for charity We made the cards and decorated them with scenes such as angels, elves, Santa's and The Nativity. We sold the cards for £1 each. We also sold a football shirt and ball that had been won in a school raffle.
We wanted to help a charity called Hospitality and Hope. It provides a food bank, soup kitchen and clothes bank for people in need. With the money we raised we bought food and treats to donate to the food bank. Paul the manager was very happy and grateful and we met lots of lovely people!
We really enjoyed our fundraising and we think that everyone should try to help other people.

Have you every heard of a charity called Locks of Love? What about The Little Princess Trust? These organizations collect donated ponytails and make them into hair prosthetics for children. Their mission is to return a sense of self-confidence and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss. Over the last year two of our children and one of our staff members (Miss McGeery) have grown their hair especially to donate it to these fantastic charities. Each of our fundraisers collected sponsorship for the event, meaning they could donate money as well as their ponytails. Between the three members of our Academy they raised over £1500 for the Little Princess Trust.
