Drew Primary School

Collective Social Responsibility (CSR)

The Learning in Harmony Trust CSR - or Collective Social Responsibility - strategy gives us a way to put our values into practice every day, engaging everyone in the Trust, helping to create a happier, more socially and environmentally responsible organisation.

We are committed to:

  • Learning in Harmony - we make sure we learn about sustainability, development, community and charity.
  • Caring in Harmony - we actively care for our staff and pupils. We care for the environment and our communities through the choices we make.
  • Serving in Harmony - we do practical things to help other people in our communities, and we help good causes
  • Acting in Harmony - we persuade others to act responsibly and take personal and collective responsibility for our actions

We are well aware of the need to do the right things in every area possible - for our people, the environment and our communities.

We have a huge opportunity as a school to create impact - directly through what we do today, and in the future through the children we educate. 

In Partnership with The Felix Project since 2022


We are delighted to be working in partnership with The Felix Project for the second year running, after one of our teachers (and last year's CSR champion) Ms Newman set the project up.

Each week, they provide Drew with a weekly delivery of healthy surplus food - everything from bread to broccoli! We then have it for sale on our 'Drew Market Stall' where families can pay what they can afford for the items that they need. We then use the money to buy more food to add to the stall, to help expand the offer week on week. 

We really love it when families send us photos and recipes of what they have cooked at home with the produce from the stall!

So - come and visit the Drew Market Stall every Tuesday in the school playground after school, and pay what you can for what's on offer.

CSR @ Drew in 2023/24

This year's CSR project is all based around community, and is being led by our Music teacher, Ms Katie Collier. Below, Ms Collier will tell you all about what is happening!

We’ve been hard at work on a new project called LEGACY which is helping our pupils to access music and develop a love of creative arts. We have written our own song which represents the important legacy of Drew Primary School and our Silvertown and North Woolwich community, referencing eras across our history. The LEGACY (Learning, Engagement, Growth, Achievement, Community, YOU!) is part of our ongoing music curriculum which helps our children to develop a love of music and take part in exciting artistic opportunities.

Drew Primary pupils have loved getting stuck in already, and we are taking it one step further to create a music video that captures the voices of our children and those in our community who make Silvertown such a wonderful place. As part of this, we have worked tirelessly together to collect photos, memories and stories about our school and area to celebrate the unique community we have in Silvertown. Some stories are dating as far back as 1895, when Drew Primary first opened, or from pupils’ experiences during the Blitz and photos from the local area – they are so moving and special and we would really love to have their voices heard as part of a music video celebrating our community.

We are incredibly excited about this and would like to have the video professionally recorded by producers and videographers. As part of this, we would love your help with anything you may be able to donate to help make this amazing dream happen!

Thank you in advance for all of your support for such a special school and community - we look forward to sharing more news and updates in the near future!
