Charitable Work at Wheatley CE Primary School
At Wheatley, we strongly believe in supporting the local and wider community through charitable work. At a local, national and international level, we strive to identify ways in which we can help others and the environment.
Charity of the Year
For the year 2019-2020, we are supporting CLIC Sargent as our Charity of the Year. CLIC Sargent is a cancer charity which supports children, young people and their families.
This means that, this year, funds raised from the majority of our school events will go towards this charity.

Our Charitable Work
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.
Multi-Colour Dress Up Day - CLIC Sargent charity of the year launch!
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.
Harvest Festival - Thursday 3rd October 2019
On Thursday 3rd October, all children in Years 1-6 visited the church for our annual Harvest Festival service with Reverend Nigel.
As part of our harvest festival, we invited 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 received an amazing array of items that will help those locally who are in need of a helping hand.
Well done Wheatley for coming together to offer your support.
