Throston Primary School

A Flying Start to Success

School Charity


Every year the school nominates a MAIN school charity to support, this year we have selected the RNLI. This follows recent tragic drownings in Hartlepool. You can read about how we 'launched' this charity via the link below:



The RNLI have since visited Year 1:


We also raise money for many other charities as shown below:

01/11/2021: From the start of November until Remembrance Sunday (14th November 2021) children will be able to purchase a poppy or poppy merchandise to show their support for the Royal British Legion. Please note Harry Fletcher*, our Poppy hero 'as seen on TV', from previous campaigns will also be selling his own bespoke poppies that commemorate 100 years of the poppy appeal (as shown above). Year 6 will visit individual classes to see if children want to make a donation for a poppy. You can also obtain poppies from the main school office.


*Harry has previously raised over £5000 for the Royal British Legion, and been thanked personally by the Queen and Bear Grylls.


15.11.2021: Just in case you missed our recent article in the Hartlepool Mail:


17/11/2021: Well done to our poppy superstar. Here he is reading a thank you card from Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen for raising money via his bespoke centenary poppies. Thank you to everyone who bought one. Harry raised a staggering £610! Well done.

Children in Need 2021

Throston Primary School will be participating in ‘Children in Need’ on Friday 19th November 2021. Children and staff may come to school dressed in Pudsey clothes and merchandise or choose to wear non-uniform. Donations will be collected in buckets as the children enter school, we also hope to set up an online donation page. This year we will also be contributing money to the ‘Intensive Care Unit’ at North-Tees Hospital, as one of our Nursery children wants to show support for her uncle who sadly passed away recently. Her uncle always wanted to help raise funds for as he put it, ‘the angels of ICU’.

During the day there will be a focus on wellbeing and celebrating differences. Each class will even develop a resource which will support children when they are feeling stressed, providing them with a strategy to draw upon.

On Children in Need Day (19/11/2021), children shared their knowledge of a neurodiversity and showed a calming resource they had made. The school managed to raise £200 for the Intensive Care Unit at North Tees Hospital and £200 for Children in Need. Amazing - thank you!
