Article 27

Adequate standard of living

'Every child has the right to a standard of living that is good enough to meet their physical, social and mental needs. Governements must help families who cannot afford to provide this.'

Red Nose Day

We asked children and staff to come into school dressed in red to support 'Red Nose Day' and donate £1 to the charity. The school council also sold red noses and wristbands at break time.

Happy Shoesday

During walk to school week we took part in the Happy Shoesday event. We raised £138 to support Living Streets walking project, by donating £1 to wear our favourite pair of shoes for the day. Some children also got creative and decorated them to their own individual styles. Strider the mascot from Living Streets came along to our celebration assembly to launch the walk to school week and Happy Shoesday. 

We held a competition for the happiest shoes in each class, prizes were awarded in the Honours Assembly at the end of walk to school week.

We also donated our unwanted shoes to children and adults in rural Africa with Africa's Gift Charity.
