"Pupils' social awareness and sense of responsibility are excellent"
- ISI Inspection Report 2015
At Ashfold we encourage children to think about their responsibilities towards the world around them and in particular those in need. Each year we support a charity and hold a number of fundraising events throughout the year ranging from home clothes days to sponsored spellathons. These events provide a positive focus and an opportunity for our school community to come together to support other communities, both at home and abroad.
Last year our chosen charity was Marula School in Zimbabwe and we were delighted to raise more than £3,000 for this good cause. We also raised money for the Royal British Legion, sent shoeboxes packed with Christmas presents to families in Eastern Europe and delivered food we collected for our Harvest Festival to a local drop-in centre for the elderly.
This year’s charity is PACE, an Aylesbury-based charity which helps children with motor disorders, such as cerebral palsy. The charity’s overriding goal is to help children and young people with physical disabilities to achieve their full potential and to be as independent as possible in their current and future lives.
