Community & Charity
Ayscoughfee Hall School is proud to be at the heart of our local community. We believe in the importance of charity and of teaching our children to care for others. Time is invested in making community links and raising money for local, national and global charities.
Our school choir is very active in our local community, performing for local citizens in care homes and at local concerts. We welcome senior citizens to our school productions and nativities. Year 6 pupils participate in community life skills. During the Summer Term, time is spent visiting and talking to local citizens in care homes, litter picking, helping our infants within the school and supporting our local community foodbank. Children are also taught essential life skills such as First Aid, Financial Economics, Wellbeing and living a Healthy and Nutritious lifestyle.
Our school council is responsible for selecting local charities to support each academic year. Money is raised through organising cake stalls, and non-uniform days. This year we have raised money for The Lincolnshire Emergency Blood Bikes and donated to The Spalding Lions Club, who are dedicated to providing help and service where it is most needed. Every year, children bring in items for our Harvest Appeal; all food items collected are donated to our local Agapecare Foodbank, providing food for people in crisis within the South Holland Area.
Dress up days and school events are often sponsored, supporting national charities such as the Poppy Appeal, Children in Need, NSPCC, Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Day, Red Nose Day, Sports Relief and Young Minds. Frequently, individual children suggest and organise their own fund raising which they share in assembly. They will then be helped and encouraged by their friends and staff. Most recently we have committed to donating a percentage of the money raised from our Toddler Group, held on a Friday, to a local charity nominated by the members of the group.
