Charity Work

As a school, Harleston CE Primary Academy works hard to give back, not just to the local community but to the global community through continuous fundraising. Through the hard work of the Governors, Friends committee, teachers and children we have been able to make a difference to a wide variety of causes;

To Kenya with Love:

For a few years now, we have been supporting young children in Kenya, helping to provide them with school uniforms, shoes, extra tuition, text books, other stationary, and development of school buildings.

Red Nose Day/Comic Relief:

Every year children and teachers always enjoy dressing up to help fundraise for this charity.

The Children’s Society:

Children at Harleston Primary often want to help those less fortunate than themselves. This is why we were able to raise and donate £79.69 for the Children’s Society who work hard to make childhood better.

Nelson’s Journey:

This year we have so far raised £303.80 for this charity which was voted Harleston Primary’s children’s’ favourite charity.


Every year for the Harvest Festival we fundraise to help different causes in Africa. Last year we supported the TearFund, a charity which helps African families and communities by the provision of seeds and agricultural equipment.  Harleston Primary raised £257.78.

Poppy Appeal:

We are pleased to say that £510.52 was raised for the last Poppy collection in school.

Children In Need:

On Friday 16th November 2018, Harleston Primary Academy held a “Funky Hair Friday”.  Pupils arrived in non-school uniform displaying some very imaginative hair styles!  We managed to raise a total of £742.69 from the non-school uniform day and Bake Sale.  Thank you to all parents and pupils who made this day a great success.

We already have more fundraising ideas in the pipe line and look forward to being able to help and support more important causes.
