Here at Courtwood we have been collecting donations of items to pass on to our local food bank, supporting The Trussel Trust, in time for Christmas. The Trussell Trust is a NGO and charity that works to end the need for food banks in the UK. It supports a network of over 1,200 food bank centres to provide emergency food and compassionate, practical support to people in crisis. Christmas can be a tough time for some families who may struggle to enjoy the festive season. Collecting and donating food encourages our pupils to value diversity and demonstrate tolerance, compassion and mutual respect to all members of the school and wider community.

Thank you to all of our pupils and staff for their generosity. Your donation will make Christmas a little easier for someone in need this year.
