Sponsored Skipping Event

After an extremely wet and windy week, we were fortunate to have perfect skipping weather for our sponsored skip fundraiser on Friday 3rd November 2023. It was only made more exciting by the arrival of a cement mixer, to offload the first load of concrete to be poured into the foundations of our new classroom build!


Every child showed great persistence and resilience as they skipped their hearts out to raise funds for the school to put towards extra curricular activities for the year. We hope your child came home full of the enthusiasm they demonstrated for this event and inspired to do more skipping or try a new active skill. Here are some quotes from our reception children about the event:


'It was fun' Quinn

'I liked skipping' Chester

'It was hard but then my teacher helped!' Jensen


We are so thrilled to announce that with your help we have raised an enormous £2,565.50!


We are absolutely stunned with the tremendous support that you have provided and are very excited to get planning on how we can use these funds to further enrich our curriculum. The initial plan is to present a small portion of the costs to the school council and under Mrs Rugg’s guidance plan a small expenditure that is purely led by the children.


Each time some of these raised funds are spent, we will be sure to update you on what the sponsorship money has purchased or funded.


Many thanks for your continued support! It is time now for us to get thinking about what we can do to top this!
