The Canford Heath Hub has been working with the 4 primary schools on Canford Heath since The Hub started, mainly with food top up parcels for those who qualify for free school meals. We recently asked them if there is any way we could help Canford Heath families who are in need in these demanding times. The Executive Head Teacher of the Trust’s four schools (Canford Heath Infant & Junior, Ad Astra Infant and Haymoor Junior). Kate Carter suggested that we might consider donating funds to purchase a Key Stage 2 online reading library from Oxford Online E-Library for each of the two Junior Schools. By providing this resource, we would be helping needy and vulnerable children who have little or no reading materials at home.
The Hub has donated £1250.00 to purchase online E- Libraries, that are now available to the parents and children from all four Teach Academy schools on Canford Heath. This is a lasting lockdown legacy for the future for all the children at Canford Heath schools.
