For Lent this year, we have decided 'to give' rather than 'give up'. As a school, we are working together to raise as much money possible for Dementia UK. This is a charity close to our hearts, as the choir frequently sing at Dementia Friendly Todmorden and care homes in the local area. Our lent fundraising events have all been amazing so far with over £2000 raised up until now!

Our New Playground Buddies
Each week two different children from each class are given the important responsibility to be a Playground Buddy. If any child has a problem, is upset, has been hurt, is lonely or just wants someone to play with they can check in with one of our Buddies who can help, play with or support them in the playground.
A staff team completed the 5K Pretty Muddy for Cancer Research on the first day of the holidays! They raised over £355!
