Hampers for the Residents of Kilsby House - 16th December 2021

On Thursday 16th December the children from the Pre-School, Chestnut and Cherry classes walked with their teachers to Kilsby House (a care home for the elderly in the village). Some of the elderly in the home have no family of their own to visit or receive a gift from, we wanted to give them something to help make their Christmas a bit more special this year. 

The children made Christmas cards for them and also brought into school lots of nice things to make up several hampers including drinks, chocolates, mince pies, toiletries, biscuits, etc.  

The staff and children could not enter the home due to COVID-19 so they stood outside in the car park and sang two Christmas songs for them and the residents waved at them through the window. The people in the home were really happy with their gifts from the children and enjoyed their singing too.

CHILDREN IN NEED - 19th November 2021

On Friday 19th November,  all the staff and children came to school dressed in something spotty or wearing their favourite dressing up outfit, bringing a donation for Children in Need.  The Year 6 children in Maple class also held a cake sale at break time to raise more funds for this cause. 

The children look great in their spots and costumes and are having a really fun day, the cakes went down a treat too! 

We raised a grand total of £212.27 which is fantastic!


In December 2020, together with the KSA and Kilsby Pre-School, we supported the community by running a collection for Daventry Food Bank.

We put together a series of hampers that were given out to vulnerable families and the elderly in our community.  Our hampers contained items such as tins of fruit, milk, ham, tuna and packets of rice, jelly, custard, crisps, crackers, biscuits, and other items such as chocolates, mince pies, stuffing, Christmas pudding, jam, marmalade, etc.

We hope that these hampers helped to make someone's Christmas special.

CHILDREN IN NEED - 13th November 2020

On Friday 13th November everyone came to school dressed in something spotty in support of Children in Need, a charity we support this time every year.

We all brought a donation into school and raised a grand total of £161.37, which is brilliant!  We very much appreciate the support from all our parents and children.

Pink Day at Kilsby School

On Friday 23rd October 2020 everyone came to school wearing something pink, some of us were pink all over!  We all brought a donation in towards a charity very close to our hearts and a very worthy cause, Breast Cancer Awareness.

We raised a grand total of £256.64 which is fantastic for such a small school, we are very grateful to all who donated so generously.


On Wednesday 9th October all the children and staff attended the Harvest service at St Faith's Church, Kilsby with the Rev Nigel Fry.

 Each class participated in the service.  The children in Maple class read a Harvest Prayer, Rowan class spoke of 'Food all around the world', the children in Cherry class read a 'Harvest poem' and the Reception children in Chestnut class sand a Harvest Song.  

All the children brought beautiful harvest gifts to school before the service and later these were distributed around the village of Kilsby to  the elderly residents.  We have already received some thank you letters from the villagers!


On Wednesday 9th October, after the Harvest service at St Faith's Church, everyone was invited back to school for a coffee morning organised by the children in Rowan class, all donations were split between Cancer Research and HOPE.  Thank you very much to all those who attended and donated cakes, we raised a grand total of £116.92 which is fantastic!  Thank you!

Epilepsy Awareness Day Tuesday 26th March 2019

Because it was Epilepsy Awareness Day on Tuesday 26th March, and also because we have children in school with epilepsy, we all came to school dressed in something purple to raise money for the Epilepsy Society.  Children brought a donation into school and at morning break time some of the girls in Maple class held a cake sale.  There was a huge queue of children wanting to buy cakes, and we did very well for a small school raising a grand total of £107.96.

We would like to say a big thank you to all the parents who donated cakes for this event, your support is very much appreciated.


On Thursday 14th and  Friday 15th March 2019, all the children at Kilsby School  did their bit to help keep Kilsby tidy by going out and about around the village, in class groups,  to pick up any litter they could see. They used special litter pickers to grab the rubbish to put it into their sacks and wore hi-vis jackets.

We hope the residents of Kilsby agree that the village is looking much tidier!


During October 2019, we have been working alongside St Faith's Church to help put together some gift boxes for desperately poor children and families at Christmas time.  Some of these children live in tents in the mud, or in the back of container lorries, some have never ever received a present, so receiving gifts such as these means so much to them.

The children brought little gifts into school such as hairbrushes, toothbrushes, soft toys,  colouring sets, sweets, etc. to put into  shoe box sized, decorated gift boxes. This is something we do every year, and it is good to know that we are helping someone, somewhere in the world.
