Y1Children in Need: We raised £103.10 for Children in Need on Friday 14 November with a Non-Uniform Day.

Wear it Pink: We held a non-uniform day on Friday 10 October and raised £93.96 for the untitled9Wear it Pink charity, whose mission is to beat breast cancer.

Jeans foruntitled8 Genes: On Friday 19 September staff and children wore their jeans to school on Jeans for Genes Day in return for a suggested donation and managed to raise £100.70! Sometimes a tiny difference in someone’s genes can cause problems with the way their body works. There are more than 4000 recognised genetic disorders, and many more that doctors have yet to give a name to. Every half hour a baby is born in the UK with a genetic birth defect or disorder which could seriously affect their lives. Jeans for Genes helps to provide help, support and information for children and their families, and invests in ground breaking research into genetic conditions. More information…
