Friends of Chancel
At Chancel we are very lucky to be situated within such a supportive community. Below are just some of the local businesses who have offered us their help and support.
Barclays have very generously provided match funding for many of our PTFA events. They have also given us grants in the past to enable us to organise community events.
Every summer the children at Chancel collect the Morrisons Let’s Grow vouchers which are then used to purchase gardening equipment for the school eco garden and outside spaces. During the Spring Term we collect the Sainsbury’s Get Active vouchers to enable us to purchase sports equipment.
At Chancel we are incredibly lucky to have regular visits from Chester, the ‘Pets As Therapy’ dog. Chester loves to sit and listen to children read to him; to improve their confidence and develop their love of reading!
The Woodland Trust have very kindly donated 200 trees to our school. The children had great fun planting the trees around the school site and can enjoy watching them grow for many years to come.
We link very closely with the local high school in Rugeley and pride ourselves on being an educational network.
Throughout the year Chancel collects vital supplies for Rugeley Food Bank to help families in need.
We would like to thank Tesco, who have donated a significant amount of money towards our ‘Trim Trail’ and who have always been very supportive of Chancel; regularly donating refreshments for school events. Tesco have also organised Farm To Fork tours for every class in school, an experience that the children have found incredibly interesting.
We have developed close links with this school in Sri Lanka and staff have taken part in a cultural exchange.
Other community links involve supporting Rugeley Sheltered Housing Society and Rugeley Blind and Partially Sighted Residents.
