Poppy Sales

Thank you to children and families who have supported the poppy appeal by donating money for a poppy to wear in remembrance of those who have given so much for the freedom we enjoy and take for granted.  Clarksfield thoughts also go out to all families affected by conflicts, present and past.

Minute Silence on Wednesday

On Wednesday, the children and staff of Clarksfield School undertook the national minute’s silence to commemorate the bravery of those who lost their lives or fought and survived to preserve the rights and freedoms afforded to us today in Britain.  The children were very thoughtful and sensible without exception, once again, showing their wonderful values.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Once again, the generosity of the school community has been brought to light!  A huge thank you to ALL the children, parents and staff who donated biscuits, cakes, fruit and refreshments in support of the Macmillan Nurses cancer support coffee morning.   Your generous cash donations have meant that the school has been able to raise £190.12.  

Another wonderful example of a superb team effort!

Year 6 Business Challenge

Since completing their SATs, our Y6 children have been involved in a Business Enterprise Challenge Project. 
Each class has created a product to sell in an attempt to make profit for two fantastic charities: Children in Need and Macmillan Cancer Support. The children have designed the product, produced financial plans, calculated all the costs and potential profits and designed marketing for their businesses. They have worked extremely hard!

On Friday 6th July 2018 at Tesco, Huddersfield Road, Oldham, the children were selling their products. 
6SK made bathbombs. 
6NP made candles.

Small groups of children were trading at Tesco from 9:00 until 2:30.

The children raised over £160 - all of which is profit for their nominated charity. The children were able to offset their costs by raising money when they organised a coffee morning and cake sale at school.

The children had an amazing experience! They were all polite, well-mannered and extremely well behaved - a real credit to the school!

Thank you to everyone for your support.

Well done to everyone involved!

Fundraising and Events


Once again, the generosity of our families has been brought to light!  A huge thanks to families who have donated shoe boxes filled with basic everyday items in support of the Shoe Box Appeal.  These items will provide much needed relief for many Syrian refugees who have been affected by the crisis in Syria.  Also, your generous cash donations has meant that the School Council has been able to raise £203.74!

We appreciate your continued support and hope that by working together, we can bring some joy into the lives of those innocent families whose lives have been devastated by war.

Well done Clarksfield Community!

Helipad Appeal - GREEN DAY

The Royal Manchester Children's Hospital provides specialist healthcare services for children and young people throughout the North West, as well as nationally and internationally. 

Clarksfield Primary School’s School Council members organised a special assembly which was delivered by Lisa Humphreys (Events Coordinator at the Children’s Hospital) and Humphrey (the hospital's mascot).  She explained to the children about the Charity Appeal to build a dedicatedhelipad on site at the Trust at a cost of £3.9 million. 

Using the strapline, 'Time Saves Lives', the Helipad Appeal will enable the creation of a brand-new 24-hour access primary helicopter landing site, the first of its kind in central Manchester. This will allow the hospital to save many more lives and will increase the chances of a full or improved level of recovery in many seriously ill or injured patients.

The helipad will be built on top of the MRI hospital car park and connect to Manchester Royal Infirmary, Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, St Mary's Hospital and Manchester Royal Eye Hospital via a link bridge and roof top corridor.

Therefore, with it being the holy month of Ramadan - a time for reflection, doing good deeds and donating money to charity,  the School Council members have decided to support this unique project by organising a whole-school non-uniform day, where the children will come into school in GREEN, whilst also making a generous donation towards the Helipad Appeal

A Special Prayer Service for One of Clarksfield's Special Children:  Aleeza Ahmed

Dear Parents and Friends,

As you will probably know - one of our children - Aleeza Ahmed, who attended our school in Year 1, very sadly passed away last year. Last Friday, the school community gathered to celebrate her short but very happy life with a special prayer service at school. This was arranged with Aleeza’s family.  The Imam from Ronald Street Mosque led a short but beautiful prayer.   After the prayer, a plaque engraved with Aleeza’s name was placed on one of our school playground benches in memory of Aleeza Ahmed: our little girl from Clarksfield.

Aleeza’s family have also made a donation of some special books (for our school library) for all the children of Clarksfield to read and these books will be inscribed in her name for remembrance.

In addition to this, the staff and pupils organised a coffee morning and a bake sale which took place in the gym after school. As a result of all of your generosity, the school was able to raise an outstanding £516.00. 

All the money raised will be given to The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and The North West Air Ambulance Service in memory of Aleeza Ahmed.

Furthermore, Aleeza’s parents were very deeply moved that the entire school community should care so much about their daughter and remember her in such a special way; they have asked Mrs O’Donnell to thank you all for your support - they really could not be more grateful and appreciative!

Finally, Mrs O’Donnell, along with the Governors of Clarksfield and the school community would like to express their heartfelt appreciation for everything that everyone has done to contribute to the memorial for Aleeza.

“Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return”
