Charities & Giving
“Pupils display an outstanding sense of social responsibility.” ISI Inspection Report 2019
At Solefield we place a strong importance on helping others and we educate our pupils to become compassionate, caring individuals. By participating in a variety of fundraising activities and events each year, we hope our pupils will learn they can make a difference to the lives of others, and that by working together we can help bring about change.
We support a variety of charities both at home and abroad. We have links with a school in Malawi who we have been working with for a number of years. Recently we raised funds to send some of our staff there and help them to build a new classroom, we were also able to send donations of uniform and other classroom essentials.
Closer to home, we are proud to support our local football club, Sevenoaks Town FC, with their skills school, which is aimed at children from 5 years upwards of all abilities, to introduce them to the world of football and keeping fit.
In addition, we support our local food bank at Harvest Festival and our Year 8 Charities Prefect identifies various charitable causes to champion throughout the year. The Evelina London Children’s Hospital, Plastic Oceans, Red Cross Typhoon Haiyan Appeal and Cancer Research UK are some of the charities we are proud to have supported recently.
Our Year 8 Prefects for Team G (ECO) and School Council are also involved in supporting various causes, demonstrating our whole school approach to valuing our world and those around us. In recent years they have raised money for a local women's refuge, sponsored Koalas after the devasting fires in Australia and provided a new sensory garden for the school.
Children at Solefield are instilled with an understanding of the world around them and are passionate in supporting good causes.
