Charity

Throughout the school year, the children, staff and parents at Oatlands school will support a variety of local, national and international charities. Below is an overview of some of the charitable work we have done recently.

Supporting our local Foodbank

FoodbankEach year, at our Harvest Festival, we collect food items for distribution to the local community foodbank.  This year we supported the Runnymede foodbank (which covers the Weybridge area) with an amazing 339.85kg of donations.  Thank you to all our wonderful Oatlands families for their incredible generosity.

CancerResearchLast spring our Mini Marathon was run to raise money for Cancer Research in memory of a Reception parent who had sadly passed away earlier in the year. We were very proud to be able to write a cheque for £772 for this worthy cause.
