Ensuring all children feel happy, safe and loved

WVPS Foodbank

You may have seen our recent post RE us looking for ways in which we can support families struggling with the cost of living crisis and setting up our own foodbank. We have decided that we would like to be able to give to ANY family in need without any restrictions being imposed. (Some food banks are restricted to families entitled to benefits and require a referral.)


We have therefore decided we are going to try and coordinate this in school for our own families. Further information will follow on how you can request help from us.


If the donations continue to come in – we will also look to donating to local community food banks such as CDW Foodbank in West Denton, who only require proof of address but initially we will be collecting for school families only.

If this changes and donations will be given to CDW we will communicate this clearly with our families.


We know that donations may be minimal as we are all feeling the pinch - If you are in a position to make a donation now or in the future, please send any donations into school with your child.
