- Bliss is a charity for babies born too small, too soon or too sick. They are a UK charity working to provide the best possible care and support for all premature and sick babies and their families. We have chosen them as our charity for this academic year because unfortunately a family member of one of our staff needed their support this summer. Over the year we are holding a variety of fundraising activities. Our first was a balloon race and three balloons made it all the way to Denmark!

Kadoma link school. As of December 2014, our school was linked with West View School in Kadoma, Zimbabwe. West View was an appropriate link because Stevenage is actually twinned with Kadoma. We are very excited about our partnership; our goal is to learn about each other’s cultures through various projects across the school. Year 6 have already written to the pupils of West View and are awaiting a reply. Two year 6 representatives will be in charge of projects and organising a display board to show the activities completed. Our first project will start in January. Please click to read their 2014 newsletter.
- Knebworth WI (Evening) we are very lucky to have volunteers from the WI come in and hear readers on a weekly basis. They also join us for special events over the year. This has gone down very well with our children who love having a 1-1 person to read with and the volunteers are enjoying it greatly too!
