At Rosedale, we take the life and teaching of Jesus Christ as our inspiration. We care about and support each other. We work closely with Furzebank Worship Centre and our families to help local communities, charities and those further afield. Charity work is important to us and the children are taught about the importance of loving each other, just as Jesus Christ loves them. (John 13:34)

We had a fantastic year of fundraising in 2018/19. For more details of the events we had and funds raised please click 'Fundraising 2018/19'.
The academic year of 2019/20 was a challenging one. As a school, we had to adapt to a new way of teaching and learning/socialising/communicating, many of us have adapted to a new way of life. Most importantly through all of this we all needed to take care and keep safe. During lock down we found many ways to keep in touch with our community and many of you found ways to still raise money for important causes - these have been outlined in our Faith in Action Newsletter Summer Edition 2019/20 below.
Before lock down, we had an amazing year of fundraising and supporting our chosen charities. To find out more about what we did for each event, click on the links below:
In January, we had a fantastic surprise from Braiswick Photographic Company. As part of their 50th anniversary celebrations they donated a percentage of the sales made from school photos to Cancer Research UK. In total, they raised £46 from our sales which is fantastic!
As a nation we are still facing challenging times ahead and as a school we will endeavour to stay connected to our community and support our chosen charities. In some cases, this may be a little different this year. Details of our first fundraising project will be sent out later this half term.
