"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 PACE, an Aylesbury-based charity which helps children with motor disorders, such as cerebral palsy . 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 The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association. The vision of the Association is for a society in which people who are blind and partially sighted enjoy the same freedom of movement as everyone else.
