Supporting out local community is important to us.
We decided to support our local food bank - Batley food bank as well as some larger charities this year.
Batley Food bank
We had a fantastic response from our families with 2 car loads of food and toiletries being donated, as well as £262.00 cash that the food bank will use to buy specific items needed. Many Many thanks to everyone.
We will accept any donations at any time and donate the food on school's behalf.

Save the Children Christmas Jumper/non uniform day - 6th December 2019
Thank you for your kind donations to this appeal, we raised £131.08 which will be sent to Save the Children. Last year we raised £152.65. The children enjoyed the day which included the christmas lunch in the dining room.
School Gala - annual event
Year 6 pupils arrange an annual gala. They have many discussions about where we will donate half the proceeds. the children are asked to suggest where they would like to donate the money, write persuasive accounts and share these with all members of year 6. The children then vote. Last year they voted for Pinderfields Hospital intensive care unit. It has a place close to our heart. A few years previously, they had decided to donate to Forget me not trust as a pupil from school sadly passed away and they supported him in his final days.
We thank local businesses for donating to our gala to help raise the funds for school and charities.
