We support 3 charities each year - the children get involved with the decisions we make. We include a local charity, a national charity and an international/global charity each year.
For academic year 2019/2020 Bishops Down Primary and Nursery School will be supporting the following:
The Mayor’s Christmas Toy Appeal http://www.tunbridgewells.gov.uk/council/councillors-and-meetings/how-the-council-works/the-mayor/6
Children in Need https://www.bbc.co.uk/childreninneed
Dream Flight https://www.dreamflight.org/
We run fundraising events during the year for our chosen charities. We feel that it is important to teach our pupils that they are part of a larger community and that everyone is responsible for those around them. By giving the value of charity a central role in the school, we hope to encourage our children to grow up with a healthy sense of compassion and a strong charitable spirit.
