Team Headlands staff and students raise money for a range of local and national charities throughout the school year.

April 2021 – Clock up the miles in memory of Captain Tom

TeamHeadlands is getting involved in the Captain Tom 100 challenge between Friday, 30th April and Monday, 3rd May.

The challenge is designed to celebrate the achievements of Captain Sir Tom Moore and is based around the number 100. Our challenge is for our school community to complete 100 miles of activity, by whatever means between 30th April and 3rd May.

We will count up a total for our whole Headlands School community and students can also set their own challenge to complete 100 miles within their year group, tutor, friendship groups or even as a family. We would like to encourage both our students and their families to take part.

All distances and activities need to be logged on the running, walking and cycling Google Classroom, which students can join using the code – rs6lzhx

All students who log distances on behalf of themselves or their families will receive certification and there will be prizes for the top distances in each year group.

Nationally, the challenge is raising funds for Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity which provides funds and nursing ‘to help seriously ill children lead a marvellous life’.

As part of this challenge you are encouraged to fund raise or make a donation yourself to the charity. Donations can be made at https://captaintom100.justgiving.com/get-involved?charityId=73907

You can share your achievements on social media using #CaptainTom100, #TeamMarvellous and by tagging @Headlands_PE.

We can’t wait to see our amazing School community in action for this fantastic cause.

April 2021 – Thank you for donating laptops

Thanks to our wonderful school community, we received a total of 50 laptops, tablets and iPad donations to help Team Headlands students with their learning at home during the lockdown.  A special shout out goes to Hull Children’s University, which donated 11 laptops.

Funding support has also been received from Leonard Chamberlain Trust, The Lords Feoffees, The Ernest Cook Trust and from personal donations made to our JustGiving page.  This has helped to fund 37 Chromebooks for our students most in need.

You have helped us to provide our students in need with access to devices that will not only support their studies during the recent lockdown but also in their future studies.  Regardless of lockdown this time has highlighted the issues some families face due to lack of access to technology.  Thank you for playing a huge part in our initiative to help our students get online.

April 2021 – Mrs Bannister’s story – Running for CALM

“Last year, I started running in memory of my late husband, Mark. He was a great runner, I followed him to every race proudly cheering from the sidelines.

“When the first lockdown hit I was only three months into my grief and his first birthday without him was fast approaching.

“I decided to organise a virtual 5k on his birthday and raised £1,500 in his memory for CALM – the Campaign Against Living Miserably, a charity leading a movement against suicide – in order to try to unite people in the strange times we were experiencing.

“From this, I was approached by CALM and Puma after they chose me to be a part of their new campaign Spark Change Run, and share my story. This week they released the trailer in their social media and my story will follow in a couple of weeks’ time.

“I am currently training for my first half marathon, taking Mark’s ballot place in the London Landmarks Half and will be organising a virtual 5k again in April for Mark’s birthday. I would love to invite you all to take part.”

“Team Headlands have been an incredible support to me through the past 15 months and I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart. I sometimes run after school so if you see me, please do say hello and shout your encouragement…it really does spur me on!”

If you have any books for older children or teenagers at home that you no longer need, please consider donating them to Headlands, and we will pass them on.

You can leave books in the drop box at the Sewerby Road entrance to Headlands School.

January 2021 – Launch of Team Headlands Care Packages

This week Miss Brown (Lead Practitioner – Student Welfare) set up our first Headlands School Care Package Scheme.

As a result, so far this week we have provided eight families with Care Packages and would like to be able to offer more families this support.

If you are able to make contributions to this scheme we would really welcome tins of food, packets of biscuits, cereal and other non-perishable items.

A basket for members of the public to make donations will be in place at the front of the Co-op store on Martongate at the start of next week.

Alternatively, contact the Headlands School main reception by calling 01262 676198 or emailing admin@headlandsschool.co.uk and we will arrange for a suitable collection time.

A huge thank you to Co-op, which has also agreed to donate fresh produce twice a week, and to Thorley’s Bakery in Driffield, which will also be donating goods regularly.

To help to support the Headlands School Care Package scheme, a Just Giving page has been set up, where parents, carers and members of the public can donate money, which will be used to buy food and household items.

We set an ambitious target of £1,000, but by Thursday morning, we had already reached £910, so our new target is £2,000. Every pound and penny counts and will be put to good use. The address is www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/headlandscarepackages

December 2020 – Reverse Advent Calendar

Thank you so much to everyone who donated items towards our Reverse Advent initiative this year.

Students were asked to bring in donations of non-perishable food (cans, cereal, biscuits, etc), toiletries items (toothpaste, shampoo, moisturiser, hair brush) or warm clothing (hat, scarf, gloves) to their tutor group.

The generosity of the Team Headlands community meant that our school managed to donate a record amount of food and items for the local community.

The Hinge Centre in Bridlington is working very hard to organise how to distribute these items to families and will be using them throughout the winter to provide for local people.

The project was organized by Miss Peck (Head of Religious Studies) and she said: “After such a difficult year it has been uplifting to see the kindness of our Headlands School community. Thank you o

December 2020 – Christmas Jumper Day
November 2020 – Children In Need
November 2020 – Oddballs bobble hats

In school, we have a large number of #TeamHeadlands Oddballs bobble hats. Oddballs is a label in the sports industry that draws attention towards Testicular Cancer through their range of sportswear.

At Headlands School, we take great pride in helping to spread awareness of cancer with both male and female students.

By purchasing a Headlands-branded Oddballs bobble hat for £10, your child will not only support the school, but also promote the company further. See the PE team for more details.

October 2020 – Young Minds fundraiser

Thanks again to everybody who wore an item of yellow clothing to support World Mental Health Day last week.

The donation collected in tutor groups raised £236.70 for the Young Minds charity.

September 2020 – Macmillan Coffee Morning

Well done to the students who organised the coffee morning at The ARC last Friday.

They raised a fantastic £282.45 for Macmillan Cancer Support. Thanks to everyone who supported the event.

Mr Abbotts said: “There were lots of cakes, games and challenges on offer for a very good cause.

“Students had put a lot of hard work in to making sure it was well planned and organised.”
