“Love your neighbour as yourself” Mark 12: 29-31
At Lulworth and Winfrith Primary School we encourage and support our children to be ‘Courageous Advocates’. As such, they champion causes in their community, local, nationally and globally. We help them understand that throughout life they and others will face challenges they will need to overcome.
The children are given the chance to discuss the big issues, to challenge injustice and to engage in activities that can bring about change. They are encouraged to develop an understanding of the wider world and how they can help to make it a better place.
The work the children do to support others is underpinned by our Christian beliefs and School Values.
Our pupils and their families support causes and charities to make a difference in our school, the local community and also nationally and globally. The children play a leading role in organising and supporting charity events.
In recent years we have carried out a range of different fund raising to support many good causes and raise awareness, some of which include:
Children In Need
Save the Children (Christmas Jumper Day)
Our local food banks
Royal British Legion (Remembrance Day)
Shoe box appeal
We also work to raise money to improve school life for all members of our school community, projects have included:
Improvements to our swimming pool area
Paintings to make our playground a more fun place to play
EYFS outside area
Equipment to support our learning e.g. musical instruments and Numicon for KS1
Our most recent charity event was raising funds to support the Piam Brown Ward at Southampton Hospital, where one of children has received treatment for the last 3 years. Our children we keen to raise money to help children going through the same thing as their friend. At the end of the Spring Term all of KS1 were involved in an amazing sports afternoon. It was great fun and we were pleased to be able present the hospital with a cheque for £3030!
Thank you to everyone involved and all who contributed!
Thank you so very much for setting up a Just Giving page to support Southampton Hospitals Charity – Piam Brown Ward through your sports afternoon.
It is truly a super thing to do to show your support to Joshua and his family.
We recommend that you share the link to your page with all of your contacts to maximise the money you raise and keep it even updated it with how the afternoon went, the more photos the better!
Thank you so much for your support. The page has done really well already, over £700 which is absolutely fabulous. If there's anything you need from us to help support your fundraising please do not hesitate to get in touch. Marianne had asked about banners and Tshirts, which we do have but only generic ones for Southampton Hospitals Charity – rather than PB specific. Do let me know if this would be helpful.
Take care and stay safe
We supported the Royal British Legion through the sale of poppies. We are proud to support this charity especially with the strong links our families have with the army.
Children In Need
We had a non uniform day to raise money for Children In Need. Lots of children wore spots or dressed in spotty clothes. It felt good to raise money to help other children.
Ride and Stride 2022
On Friday all of the children on Winfrith Site joined in the 'Ride and Stride' fundraiser to raise money for the Historic Church Trust. At the moment they are helping to raise funds to fix the church roof at Holy Trinity Church, West Lulworth.
The School Council organised a sale to raise money for the Bible Society this week. Lots of items were donated and bought and over £160 pounds in a very short space of time.
The four local churches have pledged to double the amount raised; the final amount will be sent to the Bible Society. The money will be used to provide Open The Book sessions in schools overseas.
We have been supporting the Royal British Legion by selling poppies.
Children in Need 2022
Today our children came to school in colourful clothes to raise money for Children in Need. We talked in our classes about the charity and learnt about some of the children the money they donated would help. We also thought about ways in which they can be a good friend and how their actions can help other people.
