At Waverley we are keen to show our pupils how important it is to contribute to the life of a wider community - within school, the local area, nationally and world wide. Our pupils are keen to made a difference. Each year we hold a 'Charities Day' when groups of pupils run stalls which support their charity or good cause. Each stall is given a slot in assembly time to talk to the school about the work that their charity does; on Charities Day pupils are able to visit each staff choosing which charity to donate to.
Last summer term we supported Sal's Shoes, collecting over 4000 pairs of shoes to send to children who were unable to them. This was an amazing way of redistributing pairs of schools shoes which would be too small for our students in September.
Each year we support Save the Children's Christmas Jumper day. We hold a competition to decorate our own jumpers as well as donate to the charity when we wear ours to our school Christmas lunch.
Harvest Festival: We hold a special Harvest assembly at school and take collections for the local food bank.
Community Service is also a significant part of our Waverley Abbey Challenge.
