The Common Good

The Good in all of us

It is the mission of all Catholic schools that we contribute to the ‘common good’ of our community and society as a whole in response to the Church’s teaching on social justice.

This year we have raised funds for a number of charities, thanks to the generosity of our parents, pupils and staff 

CAFOD Family Fast Day

CAFOD’s Brighten Up Harvest Campaign

Royal British Legion

Catholic Children’s Society

Save the Children

Please find below a series of galleries and information regarding the many activities that the children at English Martyrs’ have been involved in to raise money.

Odd Socks Day:

In the following gallery, the children wore odd socks to school to raise awareness for Anti-bullying week.


Pyjama Day:

More fundraising at EMS. This time the children are wearing Pyjamas on PJ day to raise money for the homeless.


Chaplains Assembly – Food donations:

As we are coming up to Christmas we need more than usual to make donations and to think of others who are less fortunate. Southwark Food Bank is where we will donate from now on. They organise food parcels for homeless people as well as emergency packages for local families living in poverty. WE ALL NEED TO DO SOMETHING.

Her are a few pictures of our children sporting Christmas Jumpers to raise money for the homeless.
