Reaching out to others

As Christians, we care called to serve others. Our 'Personal Excellence' Pride Value asks us to be a servant of all, which means we put other people's needs before our own. There are many ways that we can do this.



Oscar Romero Award

The school has successfully achieved the  Oscar Romero Award (participator level). The

award recognizes the work that the school is doing to embed the key principles of Catholic Social Teaching in our ethos and culture, so that all within the school can experience life to the full. It also celebrates the unique ways that we as a school are 'good news' to the local, national and global community, promoting social justice through charitable work and support of charities, as well having regard,  human dignity and justice in its policies and practices. This achievement has been possible because of the hard work and commitment of the whole school community – staff,  governors, parents and children – to the catholic life and mission of the school. We received our award from Archbishop John Wilson at St George's Cathedral.

Save the Children letter of thanks




We received a letter from  Save the Children thanking us for our donation. This money was raised through our Christmas Post Office. Thank you to everyone who supported our fundraising by buying our special stamps.

St Vincent's Parish Christmas Bazaar and Bluewater Carol Singing

Our Y5 and Y6 choir have been bringing Christmas cheer into the lives of our parishioners and local shoppers by singing carols at the bazaar and at Bluewater shopping centre.



Royal British Legion Poppy appeal

During the first two weeks in November, the Y6 children sold poppies and wristbands to children and their parents on the playground each day. A total of £185.07 was raised.

Autumn Term Charity 'Pitches'

Each term, children in Y3 - Y6 put themselves forward to deliver a speech aimed to persuade the juniors to support a particular charity. 


Three individuals or groups from each class choose a charity close to their hearts and work together to prepare the speech which is then delivered to the juniors in a KS2 Assembly. Once all the 'pitches' have been heard, the children the vote for the one which 'touches' them the most.


This term, the chosen charities included 'Teamseas', 'The Born Free Foundation' and 'Cancer Research'. Two children from Y6 won the vote with their very persuasive speech about the organisation 'Save the Children'. Watch what they had to say here for yourself!



Harvest Festival Collection for the House of Mercy in Gravesend

Our Catholic Social Teaching principles of ‘Option for the Poor’ and working for the ‘Common Good’ were exemplified in our Thank Mercy Harvest Festival collection at our school mass in St Vincent's Church. The total amount raised was £478.36. Thank you for your kind generosity.


Raising money for CAFOD Summer 2022

We raised £265.22 as part of CAFOD's Walk for Hunger.


Lenten Fundraising 2022

We are all incredibly proud of the effort our children have made to raise money for the ‘Rainforest Trust’. Chloe and Demi inspired us all to raise as much money for this charity as we could in their inspirational pitch to the school telling us why it was so important. The activities that the Junior children have undertaken as part of this entrepreneurial project  to make their £1 grow are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! 


A breakdown of the fundraising is as follows:
