Our plans to turn a store cupboard into a space to support the community have happened and Community Corner is now up and running.
From this room we are now selling pre-loved uniform and shoes for £1 per item every Tuesday from 3pm – 3.30pm. Parent / Carers can buzz in via the main school gate to access Community Corner before they collect their children. On Thursday we are offering parents the opportunity to bring a children’s book from home and exchange it for a different book for their child, free of charge. This we hope will soon be able to expand to Jigsaw puzzles and some toys/games as well.
In time we hope to also use the outside noticeboard for parents / carers to advertise unwanted items for free collection i.e. baby equipment, furniture etc. which is no longer wanted. This will allow the community to recycle unwanted items whilst supporting others.
Within Community Corner we have a noticeboard with useful information about how to access help and support in the local area. This includes financial help, Food banks, Domestic Abuse support and emotional support.
