Service to our Community
Marlow C of E Infant School strives to be of service to our community be that local, national or international supporting many causes in practical or financial ways.
During the COVID Pandemic, the key worker children who were in school during the Lockdown made cards and bookmarks which were delivered to Age Concern for distribution to some of the elderly people in Marlow who were dealing with loneliness.
Some of the most recent causes we have supported are shown below.
Mini London Marathon in support of our PFA and the One Can Trust
Between Monday 28th September and 2nd October the children, teachers and teaching assistants battled sun, rain and wind to run 2.6 miles each. The children (and staff) showed a huge amount of resilience in completing this amazing distance. It is a surprisingly long way!
We raised an amazing £1,212 which was split equally between One Can Trust and our own Sandygate PFA.

Harvest Collection for One Can Trust
This year we celebrated Harvest with a service in school and the school council decided to hold a collection of items for One Can Trust. Over the week of 5th October we collected tins, packets and jars and on Monday 12th the councillors loaded these up into the car of one of our parents who kindly delivered them to the One Can Trust warehouse.
NSPCC Number Day
Despite being in Lockdown on Number Day, 5th February 2021, we still supported the NSPCC by Dressing as Digits at home and sharing our costumes with school. We also raised nearly £320 for the NSPCC through parent donations.
Wild Marlow Ambassadors
Two of our pupils were recently asked to stand as ambassadors for Wild Marlow, a local group of volunteers whose aim is to celebrate and protect the biodiversity in and around our town. They are spearheading a campaign to create a wildlife corridor in Marlow and our own school Wild World and nature corridor will form part of this. The Wildlife Ambassadors from Marlow C of E Infant School were pleased to accept a blue heart from Wild Marlow in recognition of the wildlife corridor and they will work with Wild Marlow over the coming months to ensure that our school and our local community engage with the natural world.
