Pinkwell Primary School, in association with The Elliot Foundation Academies Trust, are working together to ensure that our most vulnerable families receive the help and support that they need during these difficult times.
Our academy chain's motto, ‘where children believe they can because teachers know they can’, reflects our mission to create a safe place to nurture children and teachers. We share in a network of 28 schools and we are committed to supporting all those children and families in times of economic and social hardship.
As of September 2020, 14% of UK families with children have experienced food insecurity in the last 6 months. Recently, England footballer Marcus Rashford shed light on the importance of this issue with his new Child Food Poverty Task Force and calls to end child food poverty by extending free school meals to 1.4 million UK children.
Throughout this challenging year, the need remains high to ensure that our commitment of care to families is upheld.
Please support our combined campaign to keep all those in need supported with community boxes of essential goods, personal hygiene products and educational activities, including home learning packs for those requiring to isolate at home.
If you are able to contribute, please donate as much as you would like to support as many families as possible.
We would like to thank all of the charities and local businesses that have supported us through these unprecedented times and who have allowed us to ensure that all of our vulnerable families have had the help and support that they need.
