COMMUNITY AND CHARITY

At Dersingham we firmly believe in the importance of charity and of teaching our children to care for others.  We teach and encourage our children to be responsible British citizens with mutual respect for all. Supporting our local community is an integral part of our school education, showing kindness, care and support to those in need.  As a school, we regularly participate in national charity days and donate to charities as much as possible.  

We encourage our children to participate in events within our local community. We strive to represent our community as best as possible, showcasing our dedication, exceptional manners and resilience. The events which we have taken part in have included attending Remembrance Day memorial services, paying our respects at the site of the Grenfell Tower inferno, singing Christmas carols for the elderly at a nearby retirement home, singing as part of the Commonwealth Choir and visiting the Houses of Parliament. 

Save the children christmas jumper day

In December, we wore our Christmas jumpers to raise money for Save The Children.

We raised £250 in total.  Mrs Akinfie definitely won the 'Best Effort' award for her numerous Christmas decorations!

Children in need

This year we raised money for Children in Need by asking the children to wear fancy dress, sports kit or anything non-uniform and donate £1.

The theme for this year is “Together we can change lives”, this is more important than ever as many children’s lives have been affected because of Covid 19. 

World Mental Health Day

We celebrated World Mental Health Day on the 9th October. The children wore something yellow and donated £1 for Mental Health Foundation. We raised an impressive £400!

We felt that it was important to mark this occasion due to all the upheaval of 2020. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and brightened up the school in their yellow, this event has also been uploaded onto our website.
