Community and Charities

Charity Work

Through the hard work of the Governors, our Friends committee, teachers and children we continue to support a wide variety of causes;

To Kenya with Love:

Over the past 10 years the Harleston Community have been supporting young children in Kenya, helping to provide them with school uniforms, shoes, extra tuition, text books, other stationary, and development of school buildings. For further information and to donate to this incredible charity, click here https://www.tkwl.org.uk/

Red Nose Day/Comic Relief:

Every year children and teachers enjoy a range of activities to help fundraise for this charity. 

The Children’s Society:

Children at Harleston Primary Academy often want to help those less fortunate than themselves.  We donate to the Children’s Society who work hard to make childhood better. Funds are raised at our Christingle Service and our Nursery and Reception class Nativity plays.

Waveney Food Bank:

Every year for the Harvest Festival we collect dry and canned foods to support the Waveney Food Bank.

Poppy Appeal:

Each year we support the Royal British Legion, selling Poppies in recognition of their work, supporting serving and ex-serving men and women and their families.

Children In Need:

Every year children and teachers enjoy a range of activities to help fundraise for this charity.  We hold a bake sale and non-uniform day (with some very inventive costumes) in aid of Children In Need. 


Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) is a rare condition that causes high blood pressure in the blood vessels connecting the heart and lungs.

In addition to the above, every House identifies a charity at the start of the academic year and organises fundraising events, in collaboration with the School Council.

A big thank you goes to all parents/carers, pupils, community and family members who help, bake, donate and take part in our fundraising events.

We already have more fundraising ideas in the pipeline and look forward to being able to help and support more important causes.


The Harleston Sancroft Academy has evolved to where it is now with dignity, strength and kindness.

I feel valued as a member of staff. I like the fact the school has a clear vision, a vision that I feel a part of.

Every single person who works at the school contributes to who I am. It truly is a special place where we are all one big family.
