Save the Children UK were very impressed with all of our fundraising efforts this year. The jumpers were brighter, sparklier and more glittery than ever before. We raised £450 - thank you!!!


November 2016

This year was more successful than ever before. Yardley Primary School raised £1431.67 to help children all over the UK. Thank you for guessing spots and sweets and wearing super pyjamas to help us beat our total!

Birmingham City Mission were able to help hundreds of people due to your support. Thank you for all donations of tins, packets and bags of food for our harvest festivals - you made a huge difference!

A huge thank you for all of your kind donations and support for MacMillan this year. As usual there was a super turn out and lots of eating! You helped us raise £581.04 for a brilliant cause - thank you!



July 2016

This term Yardley Primary School will be raising money in support of Air Ambulance who are celebrating 25 years of saving lives. One of our parents will be trying to raise £25,000 by completing a series of challenges. We have already done our fitness challenge in our classes and the clothes bank located by the office is filling up. Please keep checking the school Twitter and website for any further details. Thank you for your continued support.



March 2016

We had an 'egg-citing' week to raise money for Barnardos. Pupils were asked to look after an egg for a week - they decorated it and brought it in on the first day and then took it home to see if it would survive. We raised £200 for an amazing cause, thank you to everyone who joined in.

We raised a whopping £600 for Sport Relief on Friday 18th March. Thank you to parents, pupils and staff who helped to raise money by joining our dance-athon and our huge wake-up, shake-up in the playground!

£460 was raised for Brain Tumour UK on the last day of term with 'wear a hat day'. Pupils and staff went all out with their crazy, cool and funny accessories. Thank you to everyone for taking part!

Christmas Jumper Day supports Save the Children, Make a Wish Foundation and Macmillan Cancer Support. With all of your fantastic generosity, we were able to raise over £500 for them.
Once again, thank you very much!

Yardley Primary School did it again by going all out and dressing up in their pyjamas to raise money for Children in Need. We received wonderful donations of cakes and biscuits by parents, staff and pupils to help with our bake sale.

We raised a fantastic £1016 to help children all over the UK. Well done everyone!




October 2015

For the first time ever, Yardley Primary School celebrated and fundraised for Red, White and Blue Day. This wonderful day commemorated those who have fought in the Armed Forces and those who are still fighting.
Thank you to everyone who continued to send us silver coins to help each class reach their '75 silver coin target' and to those who dressed up in the patriotic colours for the day.
We raised a grand total of £652! Well done Yardley Primary School!
