Charitable work at Wheatley CE Primary
Here at Wheatley we strongly believe in supporting both the local and wider community in a variety of ways. At a local, national and international level, we strive to identify ways in which we can help others and the environment.
Harvest Festival - Oxford Community Emergency Foodbank
Every year as part of our harvest festival, we invite donations of food and toiletries to be brought in for the Community Emergency Foodbank (CEF) which is based in Cowley, Oxford.
"At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. Then there will be equality”
St Paul, 2nd letter to the Corinthians.
We always appreciate the amazing array of items we receive that will help those locally who are in need of a helping hand.
Well done Wheatley for coming together to offer your support.
Brave the Shave
In November 2021, the whole school community supported Miss Stone in her fundraising efforts for Macmillan Cancer Support. This is a particularly important organisation for Miss Stone. We are very proud of her for taking such a bold step!
In the summer of 2021 we raised money for the NHS with our Rainbow School day.
For the years 2020-2021 and 2019-2020, we supported CLIC Sargent as our Charity of the Year. CLIC Sargent is a cancer charity which supports children, young people and their families. This is because we have a pupil who has benefitted from CLIC Sargent support and our school community wanted to support him by supporting the charity.

Multi-Colour Dress Up Day for CLIC Sargent charity of the year
On Friday 18th October, children and staff from Reception to Year 6 at Wheatley came to school in their brightest clothes to launch CLIC Sargent as our charity of the year. The children had lots of fun and we were so pleased to raise £299.11 for the charity. What a fantastic start to our fundraising this year.
Ellie's Charity Fundraiser - 7th March 2020
Ellie in Oak class was so moved by her work on oceans last term that she decided to organise a fundraising event to raise money for two charities who are working hard to support marine wildlife and protect them from plastic pollution.
Many people went along to enjoy the afternoon and Ellie raised a fantastic £421.95 for the Marine Conservation Society and Surfers Against Sewage.
We are so proud of Ellie's commitment to making our oceans a clean and safe place for wildlife.
