We need your help
Our neighbourhood is within the 20% of most deprived areas in England. It also has the highest proportion of children living in poverty in the county. Evidence has shown poverty can have long lasting effects on education, with a 28% gap by GCSE's between children receiving free school meals and their wealthier peers.
We're asking for donations to build a new forest school to help close the gap. A forest school will provide an engaging open space for local children to learn, play and be inspired. Donate today, and keep up-to-date with the project on our Blog.
