Food Appeal Success
"As schools close for the Easter break, many families in the local area will face concerns about feeding their children. Child poverty figures show that over 25% of children in Stafford are living in poverty. The school felt that Government support available in the current circumstances may not be enough to support the most vulnerable. There are also many families who aren't eligible for free school meals who are struggling and in need of support. As a community, we wanted to ease this worry during these difficult times." commented Mrs Duffield, Assistant Principal at the school.
Families simply had to complete an online form to register for a food parcel, whilst the rest of the school community supported by bringing in food donations or raising money that was spent on additional fresh food items.
"We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our students and their families, along with staff and friends of the school. What we have collected will really make a considerable difference to people in need of help. Thank you to everyone who has donated, to the students who have helped us sort the items into packs and the staff who have helped to deliver them." added Mrs Duffield.
