SPRATTON Hall School is delighted to take part in a considerable amount of charity work throughout the academic year.
The Year 8s, as part of their PSHCE syllabus, spend time raising not just money but awareness of a charity of their choice. The charities chosen are selected for various reasons and often because of a personal interest on behalf of the pupils. The charities cover many areas of the local, national and international community.
This year the school is supporting the following charities: Alzheimer's Society, Northampton Hope Centre, CLIC Sargent and the British Heart Foundation.
The benefit to everyone, pupils, staff and parents alike, is enormous. The involvement is not just for the short term. Many pupils continue their interest in the charity long after leaving Spratton Hall. Money is raised through a variety of events including home clothes days, cake sales and sponsored bike rides, to name but a few.
Additionally, Spratton Hall is linked with Outspan School, Uganda, through the link with the Northamptonshire Scouts, where Spratton Hall sponsors a child to guarantee them an education that they would not otherwise receive. Years 4 and 5 are responsible for coming up with ideas on how to raise the money for Flavia's education and these ideas have ranged from a Spratton Hall calendar, a tea towel and Rock Your Socks campaign for raising money and awareness for Down's Syndrome. Each pupil appeared in school with snazzy, jazzy tights or socks, some were paired, some were individual socks. It all gave a wonderful feel to the day where the children learned more about Down's Syndrome and the fantastic support the Down's Syndrome Association give to families that need their help.
