Beyond The School Gates
At Otley we are proud to support several different charities, as well as being involved with our local village community throughout the year.
The list below is not necessarily exhaustive, but gives a broad idea about the events, causes, charities and groups that we have had involvement with in recent times. For some of the causes detailed, you can reach their own website by clicking on the icon by the title line:
Families in Need (FIND)
We collect tins and packets of food at Harvest to assist FIND, a local charity who provide emergency assistance to families or individuals affected by poverty or dispossession.
We support the Love-in-a-Box charity, which sends Christmas presents to under privileged children throughout Eastern Europe; children who would have no present otherwise.
Waiting for Christmas
We had the excitement of being involved with recording a CD and performing in a live show for this event whilst helping raise money for Tearfund in the process.
Every other Christmas we hold a Christingle service at our village Parish Church. This well loved tradition also helps to raise money for The Children's Society.
Open the Book
The Open the Book team come and lead fortnightly assemblies in our school. This is a national initiative but our well established team comes mainly from our village Baptist church.
Children in Need
We support this very well known charity each year.
We have fun supporting Comic Relief when it happens.
Another of the nationally well known campaigns which we get involved with when it is happening.
Save The Children
Every Christmas, all children and staff members come to school wearing Christmas jumpers. This is all in aid of Save The Children.
