'Courageous advocacy’, which we instil in our pupils, enables our school community to develop a greater awareness of the challenges others face in life and how they, as individuals, can support causes and make a difference in our school community, local community and further afield. As outlined in our school vision, we recognise the limitless potential of every member of our school and nurture their unique talents so that all can have a future with hope, as well as giving hope to others.

We take time to reflect upon and appreciate how fortunate we are to be part of such a nurturing school environment, surrounded by supportive peers and staff, which allows us to live life in all its fullness and flourish as individuals. 

Supporting a wide number of charities, locally, nationally and globally, is an integral part of life at St Chad's C of E Primary School. 

In recent years we have carried out a range of different fund raising to support many good causes, some of which include:

  • Children in Need
  • Save the Children
  • Anti-Bullying Alliance
  • Royal British Legion
  • St Luke's hospice 
  • Foodbank
  • Comic Relief
  • Send my Friend to School

Each of our Houses select a cause to support as part of the Lent Challenge.
