Our National and International Community
Our Earth Keeper team is an enthusiastic group of pupils, who investigate how we can better protect our environment and world and pass on that message to everyone in our school community. Over the year they look at projects such as energy use, recycling and sustainable travel. To find out more, visit our Earthkeepers page.

In school we support wide range of national and international charities. Through this we teach children to be aware of the needs of others and how they can make a difference, enabling them to become global citizens.
Every year we raise money for the charities listed below. This may be done by holding a non-uniform day, making things in class to sell, or sponsored events and fun days. We also sell poppies for the Royal British Legion every year and hold a special Remembrance collective worship. For Comic Relief, we raise money by selling noses, as well as having a non-uniform funday. We also support local charities such as St Cuthbert’s Care and Woodhouse Close food bank. Our support for these charities encourages our children to think about the situations of others, other cultures and contemporary issues in society.
