Charities


'Wood End Park Academy Community is dedicated to assisting and thinking of others, one way in which we do this is by raising money for a range of charities.   Our aim is to encourage children to develop their Social Moral Spiritual and Cultural through exciting fundraising projects and activities where they work together.

Each year group will be assigned a charity, that they will be responsible for raising money for each school year. We are hoping this will encourage a lot of innovative and creative thinking by our children! The pupils within the year group will decide the best way to raise the money for their charity developing key skills for life.'
