Every year, our school organises fundraising activities for various charities. The children really enjoy taking part in these activities and make sure they put the fun into fundraising!
Details are below along with links to the charities.

During September 2021 , David, Di and Janise from Meon Valley HeartStart came into school to teach the Year 1 children what to do in a medical emergency. The children learnt the different steps to follow (DRSABCD). This included looking for any dangers and checking whether the person was breathing. They were told when to call 999 and when not to. They also learnt about the recovery position and practised this with their friend. They asked and answered lots of questions.
Thank you very much to Meon Valley HeartStart for enriching the children's learning.
Poppy Appeal 2021
Nearly all our poppies were sold this year, and we held our special assembly to commemorate the day. We also held a two minute silence throughout the school at 11 o'clock on the 11/11. Our children asked lots of questions and many told us about people in their family who were the forces at the time, or are in the forces now. Thank you to everybody who donated, and to our super Year 2 Poppy Collection Volunteers.
During November 2021 we raised £153.38 in donations.
Meon Valley Foodbank
During our Harvest Festival and were lucky enough to be joined by Reverend Hunt. We were blown away by the kindness and respect the children showed when listening to and performing for each other. The food donated was collected by Meon Valley foodbank.

Every year we support Children in Need. In November 2021 the children dressed up in fancy dress and took part in a Joe Wicks workout.
Over £260 was raised.
On the last day of term December 2021 the children came to school in Christmas jumpers and we raised £143 in donations for Naomi House.
