What does CAFOD do?

CAFOD stands for the Catholic Agency For Overseas Development. They are an international development charity and the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales.


They stand beside people living in poverty – whatever their religion or culture. Through local Church partners they help people directly in their own communities, and campaign for global justice, so that everyone can reach their full potential.


Coppers for CAFOD


During Advent, the whole school will be collecting “Coppers for CAFOD”. The children have been asked to bring in “coppers” during Advent (which started Monday, 27th November), which on their

own have little  value, but when combined turn into a significant collection.

This year the shoeboxes are going to children in The Philippines.  Thank you again you have been so generous

After sharing the story of the Good Samaritan, Jesus said “Go and do likewise.” That is the mission of Samaritan’s Purse – to follow the example of Christ by helping those in need and proclaiming the hope of the Gospel.


Samaritan’s Purse is an international relief and development organisation that works through local churches to proclaim and demonstrate the love of God amongst communities in Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia. We are part of the global Samaritan’s Purse family that has been providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world since 1970. Samaritan’s Purse also has offices in the USA, Canada, Germany, and Australia.


Harvest Festival

What a fantastic festival and celebration we have had today!  KS1 and EYFS made me so proud this morning with their amazing singing and confident speaking.  Every class has shared their learning and all the children made the staff and visitors smile from ear to ear with their performances.

KS2 put on a brilliant show – with amazing singing and confident performances.  The Mini Vinnies were fantastic at leading us through our assembly and I really enjoyed hearing about the different things the children had learned about Harvest.


I was so proud of how the children performed and they were a fantastic audience when watching the other classes.  Every child was a credit!


I want to thank all the children and staff for their hard work in developing their class performance and I look forward to the next festival we can celebrate altogether.


Another huge thank you has to go to all the families that have donated food for our collection, I am overwhelmed with the generosity and can’t wait to share it with our two charities.  Our hall looks amazing – what a great achievement!



A huge thank you to all the Mini Vinnies who have been helping all week to gather in the donations that have helped to create our wonderful display.



Thank you to all parents and grandparents who managed to attend KS1/EYFS or KS2 Harvest festival today, it meant a lot to the children that you were able to attend.  Your feedback is fabulous and I have picked out a few to share below. For those of you who were unable to attend, we have also put together a highlights film for you to have a look at.

Thank you for the continued support of both the school and our wonderful children,

Miss Hayes

Deputy Headteacher
