Primary academy in Manchester raises £140 for NSPCC

Pupils from Manor Green Primary Academy take part in NSPCC Number Day 2020
A primary school in Denton has raised over £140 as children donated money to dress as their favourite rock stars for the school’s NSPCC Number Day 2020.
Dubbing the initiative as the Manor Green Rockstar Day, the school encouraged pupils to ditch their uniforms and take part in the maths-inspired fundraising day, helping children with their numeracy skills whilst supporting the charity.
As part of the event, the children took part in several tailor-made mathematics sessions, including a ‘Battle of the Bands’ type tournament where children of the same year group went head to head in answering maths-based questions.
This is the 20th year the NSPCC Number Day has taken place, and over 3,500 schools have taken part raising nearly £2 million helping protect children from harm.
Head of Manor Green Primary, Tracey Thornton said: “It’s great to see so many children get involved with today’s activities and give something back to the community.Primary Academy pupils dressed up for NSPCC
“The money we have raised will enable approximately 35 children to connect with the support that they need.
“As part of Focus-Trust, we pride ourselves on ‘Making the Difference’ and Manor Green certainly have played their part here.”
Stuart Mycroft, Deputy Head at Manor Green, added: “This year we are really putting the focus on our new school motto - ‘Aspire. Achieve. Succeed.’ – and it’s initiatives like this that can bring this to life, giving the children new ways of working to help them all ultimately be the best they can be.”
Manor Green Primary Academy operates as part of Focus Trust – a charitable multi-academy trust which is based in the North West of England with a vision of providing an engaging and challenging learning environment where the children are happy.
