CHARITY AND COMMUNITY
Charity is fundamental to our ethos at Reading Primary and is taken up practically with vigour and enthusiasm at Focus Schools. Students welcome the challenge of being actively involved in raising many thousands of pounds for such as RNLI, air ambulance services, Great Ormond Street Hospital, British Heart Foundation and Guide Dogs for the Blind, to name but a few. Initiatives such as ‘walkathons’, charity bag collections and jumble sales are taken seriously by students during school hours and in their own free time.
Focus Schools recognise that they are set in communities and are committed to serve the community. Focus students are given a responsible outlook towards humanity and through the school’s Current Affairs program understanding is enhanced as to events that have ramifications on a local, national and global scale.
The children held a cake sale after our winter concert and raised an astounding £395 for Muscular Dystrophy Uk. In addition we have collected, and donated huge amount, of much need resources for our local food bank.
