Helping Others

 

The children at Westwood Academy are very proud to support a range of charities throughout the year.  The School Council will select which charities we support and what activities the children should do to raise money.

 

We encourage pupils to support a range of local, national and international charities to develop the pupils’ understanding of themselves as members of a local, national and international community.
