How to support - children and young people
Christ Church Bentinck CE Primary School
Christ Church Bentinck CE Primary School is a small primary school with just over 200 pupils, located a short walk from Paddington Basin. The school is aiming to provide every child with a small gift at Christmas – pupils in Key Stage 1 could be given jigsaw puzzles, and pupils in Key Stage 2 could be given board games. CCB School would also love to have books to add to their developing library. At the moment the shelves are there but very few non-fiction books, and they would love to be able to start growing their collection and inspiring children to read.
Marylebone Boys’ School
Marylebone Boys’ School is a relatively new free school in Paddington Basin, with around 700 students. Approximately half of these children are in receipt of pupil premium. The school would be delighted to receive gifts of warm clothing such as hats, scarves and gloves. Marylebone Boys’ School is trying to grow their library, and has a wish list of books that are in high demand, which they don’t currently have: Marylebone Boys' School - Book Wish List. The school is also keen to receive donations of artwork they can display in their sixth form centre.
King Solomon Academy
King Solomon Academy (KSA) is a three-form entry all-through state school, with pupils from age 2 in the nursery to 18 years of age in the sixth form. KSA are holding a winter fair in early December, with a bouncy castle, Santa’s grotto and a tombola. The school would be so grateful for gifts that elves could give to children in the grotto or that could be given as prizes from the tombola. The gifts would need to be suitable for children aged 2 – 11, such as warm clothes, books and puzzle books, games and arts and crafts kits.
