Reverse Advent Calendar

Reverse Advent Calendar

It’s estimated that about 120,000 extra children will be homeless this Christmas, due to unaffordable rents and cuts to housing benefits. Most housing benefit claimants are actually in low paid work , but nurses and even the police are amongst that number.

So, if you can contribute any of the following it would be most welcome:

  • Sanitary products, including sanitary towels/tampons, nappies and wetwipes.
  • Washing powder/liquid/soaps and cleaning products.
  • Tinned goods and non perishable foodstuffs.
  • Oxo, gravy granules etc.
  • Cereals – porridge is a good and cost effective choice.
  • Petfood – people suddenly struggling might still have pets to care for.
  • Small gifts

[it is Christmas!]

or chocolates/sweets/biscuits. Jam/peanut butter or nutella.  And even clothes – if they’re in a good state of repair.

Thank you so much for your support with this. Last year, the local food bank was able to make an extra 40 parcels with your donations. I’m sure anything we can give will be appreciated by a family in crisis.

Outstanding Residential Ofsted report

“The staff in this school work as one united team. Consequently, the delivery of the 24-hour curriculum is seamless. The students benefit tremendously from all of the staff spending quality time with them in the school and in the residential setting. Staff spending quality time with the students ensures that the staff team has an all round understanding of each student’s social and academic needs. This strengthens the student-and-staff relationships, and continually reinforces social and academic learning.”
