“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
Proverbs 31:8-9

At Amberley, we encourage all members of our school community to look out into the wider world and see how they might follow the teachings of Jesus in an attempt to make the world a better place. We all have something to offer, be it time, money, emotional support or a voice to raise awareness . We want our children to be courageous in their advocacy of important causes and to provide hope to those who desperately need it; we want to empower our 'Davids' to tackle the moral and social ' Goliaths' of the world.  With this in mind, we have launched a challenge for the children to become 'Agents of Change' so that they can feel pride in the work they do to support others. Children are asked to approach the school council when they have a charity or cause they wish to champion. If they can show the council that it is a worthy cause which in line with our school vision and values, then they are given permission to go ahead. 

Throughout the year, we hold various fundraising and awareness events. 
Please visit the links below to find out more about those that we aim to support.

How can you be an agent for change?

Sometimes we see things in the world which we know are unfair, and we want to help. There are two ways that this can be done:

Charity and Courageous Advocacy.

Charity is helping people who have a problem and are in need. Courageous Advocacy is speaking up for those that can’t speak for themselves, and trying to stop the problem happening in the first place.


Here at Amberley, we believe we all have the power to make a difference and as such, encourage all members of our community to flourish by becoming 'Agents for Change': advocates for initiatives which combat injustice, environmental destruction, exclusion and isolation. The Parable of the Sower details how the seed that grew on the rich, fertile soil went on to multiply. We believe that by taking action to shine the spotlight on injustice, we can raise awareness and help others to grow.

Comic & Sport Relief

Each year we support the Comic Relief campaigns through our participation in Red Nose Day and Sports Relief. 

The work of Comic Relief supports vulnerable people and communities in the UK, and internationally. Their vision is to create a just world free from poverty and they are doing this by funding 'amazing organisations doing amazing things.'

For the last ten years they have supported work that meets the needs of children and young people, including, making sure they are protected from violence, exploitation and abuse, have improved access to quality non-formal education and training and more.

Part of the monies raised at the two day event is given to a charity which has been identified and voted for by the children.

Cancer Research

1 out of 2 people in today's world will be affected by cancer. We all have stories of loved ones who have battled this horrendous disease. The staff at Amberley decided to raise fund through a sponsored 'Race for Life' 5km run. 

If you would like to donate to their cause, please visit their donation page:

Waunifor Primary School, Kenya

Waunifor school opened on the farm of 
Mrs Crampton's grandparents, in 1953 and catered for the children whose parents worked on 4 neighbouring farms. It proved immensly popular and before long, children were arriving from 20 miles away in order to receive an education. 

Today it is run by the local government and has 11 classes and over 500 pupils. Their library is poorly resourced and we would like to help raise funds to buy much needed books to aid teaching across the curriculum and reading for pleasure.

Sadly, there is lots of injustice in the world, but if we are courageous,
we can be part of making a change.
