At Wren Park we support a number of charities locally, nationally and internationally. We see this work as a vitally important partnership in teaching children about the world around them as well as about the difficulties people and communities face through environmental, social or political issues which they are faced with. We use this as a means to discuss and debate as well as to support through empathy and practical help or fundraising.
We hope our children can see how they have a positive impact on those less fortunate or facing difficulty.
We always focus on what the Wren Park children can learn from the plight of others although we also teach them about supporting charities for ultraistic purposes.
Please support our charities and events (many of which are identified by children's own personal interests).
We have a couple of big projects that we support:
Mrs Trickey visited Kenya to work in another school for a week in June 2016 (and Miss George visited in 2015) as part of the Rams In Kenya work. This was a great opportunity for her to support the school in Kenya and bring her experiences back to share with the children at Wren Park.
Two ex pupils, Sammy and Joel (now in Littleover School sixth form), have been in to school to talk about their experiences here at Wren Park and at Littleover School. They have been raising money for their trip to work in a school in Uganda. They have also spent some time talking to our children about being safe online (E-safety). Thank you Sammy and Joel!

We now have a partnership with Derwent Heights Care Home (recently opened near the Nuffield Hospital). Our children have designed room names and visited to sing Christmas carols, parade their Easter Bonnets and attend their official opening! In return we have received some lovely gifts of baking and gardening equipment for our school, along with some Derby County items to raffle at our school fair!
We are also very honoured that their café has been named the "Wren's Café".
