Pupils launch fundraising project to 'give back to the community'

We have launched two new programmes to ‘give back to the community’ and to reward pupils with special trips which were not possible during lockdown.

We recently launched our Big Hearts initiative raising £117.60 for MK Hospital by laying a silver penny lane in the playground.

Our Year 5 children also started a Big Dreams project. We paid for each child to go to MK Theatre to watch Gangsta Granny and the children loved it. Next week we are taking Year 4 children to Tring Museum to take part in a Bones workshop.

Our programme of ‘Big Hearts’ and ‘Big Dreams’ provide children with the experiences that build a childhood. Each child gets the chance to experience one ‘Big Hearts’ visit or experience and one ‘Big Dreams’ every year.

The Big Hearts programme enables pupils to work in the community to support those around us.

Big Dreams allows children to have access to a range of enriching experiences that are free of charge to parents and so accessible to all. These are trips and visits that build childhood memories and are above and beyond normal trips and visits and not linked to specific learning.
