About us

Darley Dale Primary School is an outstanding school where standards of literacy are high, and reading is greatly valued as part of everyday school life. We believe in a broad and balanced education which goes beyond the basic statutory curriculum and develops all our pupils’ interests and skills. 

What do we want?

We are asking for Sponsorship to fund our It's a Knockout event at Darley Dale Primary School on Sunday 15th September. It will be open to all the community and will also be promoting mental health awareness supported by The Derbyshire Federation for Mental Health. 

With 1 in 8 children having a diagnosable mental health problem and 1 in 6 adults it is something that will probably effect us all in some shape or form, this is why we would like your help. We are asking for donations of £200 from each business to pay for us to be able to bring in a professional It's a Knockout team to run the event. For a donation of £200 the name of the business will be on a teams t-shirt and in the programme on the day, social and editorial media leading up to, on and after the day also happy for you to bring any promotional material on the day.  

What we are raising money for?

The money that is raised from charging people to enter the competition will go towards kitting out a sensory room at Darley Dale Primary giving children with all sorts of needs somewhere to go to make their life just a little bit easier.

We then also will be donating to Action for children Derbyshire who are an amazing charity, who's vision it is for every child and young person in the UK has a safe and happy childhood, and the foundations they need to thrive.
