Caritas - Charity Work

To support our school value of Caritas children across the school regularly get involved in planning, selecting and supporting charities. Children support local, national and global charities in various ways. Pupil voice is used via the School Council to select causes that the children wish to support. These are used as learning tools to help children understand social, cultural and moral issues. 

What does 'Caritas' mean? Caritas is a Latin word which means, 'Christian love of humankind: Charity'.
Charities we support include:
In the school year 2020-2021, to celebrate World Book Day, the school took part in a sponsored Readathon to raise funds for Read for Good. This is a charity which helps children who are seriously ill in hospital by providing them with a library of books as well as regular visits from Storytellers to help make their stay easier. This charity was chosen by our Chief Librarian. Children had to gain sponsorship to read as much as they could over a period of 2 weeks. In the end, we managed to raise £1,202 - an incredible amount for a small school.
