Fundraising

We consider fundraising to be a very important part of our school life. Thinking about others who have needs that are different and often greater than our own is just so important in our efforts to develop empathy in our school.  Furthermore it gives our children a great insight into the wider community and begins to develop their social consciousness.  We support a range of charities both local and national at the suggestion of our school community.

Given that we are a very small school, no-one could fail to be impressed at the combined efforts of our community. Details of our fundraising can be found by the array of certificates proudly displayed in our entrance hall.

Local

I.M.P.S is a health education programme delivered to pupils jointly in Woodeaton and our local hospital, The John Radcliffe, emergency department. Its aim is to teach pupils to recognise potentially dangerous situations and prevent injuries. The programme also equips pupils with first aid and resuscitation skills, helping them to respond effectively if an incident occurs.

We appreciate fully that we are all living in a world that is struggling to make ends meet. With this is mind, we were truly amazed when Mr and Mrs Gascoigne, parents of Jess, offered to organise a ‘Masque Ball’ in September 2012 to raise money for our school. They thought that they would be able to raise £2000. School helped them with setting up the Officer’s Mess, blowing up balloons and selling tickets for the ‘Ball’ and raffle. The amount of help we gave was insignificant in terms of the extraordinary effort made by Lesley Gascoigne. The ‘Ball’ was an amazing success and raised a staggering £5972.72. The money has been spent on IT equipment.

Whilst we know that families are finding it hard to give money to charitable organisations, we do benefit from charities giving us fabulous opportunities. Examples include:

  • The Oxford Round Table fund a day trip to The Cotswold Wildlife Park
  • The Variety Club of Great Britain have provided us with two minibuses and so many opportunities to attend so many events around the country
  • The Island Trust fund all of our ‘Tall Ship’ holidays
  • Olbas Oil purchase big piece of equipment on an annual basis – Basketball stands, televisions, computers – the list is endless

 

If you know of any other opportunities that would benefit our children and their families, please do not be shy in contacting us.
