Red Nose Day 2024

Caldershaw Pupils (and staff) thoroughly enjoyed Red Nose Day 2024. Pupils voted to come in their favourite colour or dressed in a selection of colours, including crazy hair and face paint. Our fantastic cook, Rorrie, also made Red Nose biscuits to aid in our fundraising efforts. We had a wonderful day and most importantly raised £580 for this extremely worthwhile cause!


Brain Tumour Research 'Wear a Hat Day' 

Part of the school Council's 'Big Action Plan' for 2023-2024 was to participate and raise money for the Brain Tumour Research 'Wear a Hat day.' The children had a great time wearing their own clothes and hats (many of which were very imaginative) and for our efforts we raised a fantastic £631!

Cat's Protection Day 2023

The final part of our 'Big Action Plan' for 2023 involved informative class talks from a representative from Cat's Protection, followed by a 'purrrfect' day of fun and fundraising for this worthy cause. During our fundraising day, pupils and staff dressed up as cats (or in cat colours) for a £2 donation. Some lucky children who were picked from a draw, then had the opportunity to paint the faces of  their Teachers and Teaching Assistants to make them more 'cat like.' As you can see, some of the results were interesting but the children had a great time doing this. Finally, staff and pupils paraded their feline moves down a catwalk to cat themed music. For our incredible efforts we raised a fabulous £574! A huge thankyou and well done for all of your support.

Caring Caldershaw

As part of our Big Action Plan, the School Council delivered handwritten letters and postcards to residents within our local community. The letters were written by all of the children within our school, with the intention of spreading some happiness and good cheer.

The Guide Dog association.

 Well done to Caldershaw-we raised £406-98 for the Guide dog association. The children enjoyed taking part in a blind folded obstacle course which helped them to have a greater understanding of how it feels to be blind. They also had fun playing Pin the tail on the dog!  

Alongside our Eco council, the school council have decided to support two animals, which are currently endangered in 'Our World'!

We collectively chose the sea turtle and the jaguar. Both of these face habitat destruction, climate change and many other factors, which in turn are causing a catastrophic decline in these species. Caldershaw Primary School will make a donation, which will hopefully help to protect the future of nature and support the WWF's Global efforts.

Well done Caldershaw for yet another successful

'Odd socks Day'

Monday 11th of November 2019.

Children and staff are invited to wear 'Odd socks' to kick start this year's Anti-bullying week in November!




Our plan consists of three parts:

  1. A Random act of Kindness-children from each class will be writing a letter, drawing a picture or even writing some jokes. These will be posted to our local residential homes to put a smile on the residents faces!
  2. Supporting our local RSPCA.
  3. Supporting our local Food bank in Rochdale by collecting non-perishable items.


The school council completed the first part of their big action plan by asking the whole school to write a 'Random act of Kindness' letter for the residents of Beechwood Lodge.

Some children asked questions, wrote jokes or even drew a picture! Mrs Scott delivered them just before Christmas 2018 and they were received with thanks from the residents!

The school council have completed the second part of their action plan by collecting donations for our local RSPCA. We have donated food, toys, blankets and lots of other fantastic things to make an animals life happier!

Thank you very much for your continuous support:- The Rochdale branch of RSPCA were overwhelmed by our donations.

This consisted of Jerk chicken, spicy noodles, home made coleslaw, burgers and lots more!! Most of the children agreed that the new ideas were very tasty indeed!

Look out for them appearing on our menu choice.
