Charity Work

As a Christian school we believe in supporting others and our pupils have many opportunities to support those who are less well off or in need. Our PTA is also involved in charitable fundraising. Read about some recent charitable activities below or see the pictures above.

British Red Cross

In class, we listened to the words of Pope Francis and joined a day of prayer for Ukraine on Ash Wednesday.  This prompted discussion around the difficulties that many refugees face when they are forced to leave their home due to war, famine or natural disaster.  As a school, we decided to reach out and help by fundraising for the British Red Cross.  The children came to school wearing mufti, learnt about how our actions can support others and the importance of supporting those in most need, with a focus on humanitarian support.  The children also organised a cake sale and we were able to donate £569.29 to the British Red Cross.

Number Day for the NSPCC

St Benedict's children and staff dressed as something number themed and enjoyed a day full of maths activities.  KS2 were involved in the TTRockstars Battle and KS1 enjoyed time on Numbots.  The fancy dress creations were amazing and a £154 was raised for the NSPCC

Child in Need

This Year for children in Need the children came to school wearing something spotty and held a cake sale after school - yum!  Year 6 children helped sell the cakes and £383.12 was raised to help those in most need.  

Aid to the Church In Need

As a school we recognise that it is not just money that helps those most in need and that prayer is a powerful way to offer support, courage and empowerment to those who need it most.  On October 18th the whole of St Benedict's joined with 1,000,000 other children around the world to pray the Rosary.  This powerful collection of prayer was to call for unity and world peace.
