The celebrations have started!

cf-4Behind the scenes our children, Friends of Middlethorpe and staff have been working tirelessly to organise and stock our Christmas fair and what a fantastic job they did! Their hard worked paid off…So far the grand total profit raised approximately £1,250!!! This is unbelievable. Everyone at the academy would like to say an enormous thank you to parents, carers, grandparents, aunties, uncles and friends who came to our fair and helped us to raise such a fantastic amount of money.

As I am sure you are all aware, educational budgets are being tightened across the country and for that reason we are even more grateful for your generosity. I would also like to say a huge thank you for the fantastic number of shoe boxes as part of the Samaritans Purse Shoebox appeal.

Having met with the Academy Council and spoken with staff and parents, we have made the decision that this £1,250 will be the start of a fundraising challenge. We would like to improve opportunities for outdoor learning across the academy. Fundraising could provide a covered space for outdoor learning in KS1, a sensory garden, opportunities to lessen our carbon footprint and development of an eco-friendly environment at Middlethorpe. Over the coming months a display showing the total raised will be created and events will be put onto the calendar. The design of this will be created by children, parents and staff.

Once again, thank you so much for your generosity and kindness. I look forward to my first Christmas at Middlethorpe.
