World Refugee Awareness

At the end of the Spring term we held a World Refugee Awareness Day.  Each class researched a country which has been affected by war, causing people to have to leave and become refugees elsewhere.

Each class then created a stall based on the country they had researched and pupils spent a morning visiting the different stalls so we could learn about all the different countries, their customs, food and culture.  The money raised at the stalls came to over £600 and was donated to the refugee work of the Salvation Army.  Kerry Coke from the Salvation Army visited the school to collect the money and spoke to pupils about the work of the Salvation Army during an assembly.


Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
