The Community Group

Mission Statement


We aim to make the community a better place by helping charities, local families and local businesses.

For our first community project we have asked for donations to be made to Blackburn Hospital instead of gifts being brought into school.

Hopefully we will raise lots of money for the NHS as they are awesome!

Cards for Kindness

The Year 2 Community Group have arranged for the children in their class to make Christmas cards this week.  The cards have  been  sent to residents and staff at local care homes as part of the Cards for Kindness campaign which aims to help spread cheer and ease loneliness in care homes at Christmastime. What a lovely gesture Year 2, I’m sure your cards will be greatly appreciated!


Red Nose Day!

The Community Group organised a Crazy Hair Day in school to raise money for this very worthy charity!  It was a whole school fund raising event and it was lovely to see such an array of colour and fun across school on Friday! Such a fantastic effort from children and staff!

Thank you from the Community Group!

Worship & Culture Group

Our mission statement:

“We will help people understand more about God and build their faith by listening to the voices of everyone in school, asking big questions and planning fun, creative and interactive activities.”


During Spring term we will be focusing on making sure everyone understands our school values and finding ways for classes to interact with each other safely during worship. We will also be looking at creating a new school prayer.

Eco Group

Our mission statement:

The Eco Group believes in helping our school community to take care of the planet, stop pollution and live a more sustainable life. We can make a change!

The Eco group wrote a letter to the PTFA to ask if they would help us by buying some new signs for the playground. The PTFA loved the letter and we were so excited when the signs arrived!
