Promoting British Values
Crofton School promotes the British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We actively promote the values by challenging opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to fundamental British values. Here is a useful document.
Charity work at Crofton
Students at Crofton have always been very good at giving their time and money to others less fortunate than themselves.
In October we hold a charity week every year, where each house is responsible for a days’ events to raise money. During the week the school raises money for 4 charities nominated by the students’ and the school Ghana project. In 2016 we were pleased to be able to present £600 to each of our chosen charities. The staff and students also hold a coffee morning once a half term to raise money for other charities nominated by students or staff. Staff and students donate cakes and the at break time they all enjoy a coffee/tea and cake together. There is usually a raffle of donated goods to help raise more funds.
In 2017, students are aiming to raise £5000 for Canine Partners. The £5000 will enable the charity to buy a puppy and cover the cost of the initial puppy training. During Charities Week, each tutor group ran a stall on their given house day, this included selling cakes and sweets, throwing sponges at teachers, making mocktails and decorating cookies. Students rehearsed for three evening events, Open Mic and two evenings of ‘A Night at the Musicals’. During the week we managed to raise just under £3000.
