A tiny school has pulled out all the stops to help Ukrainian refugees.

Children, parents, carers, governors and staff at Romans Field special school collected donations for the Ukrainian Appeal.

Romans Field school is a small school in Bletchley, of fifty-six children aged 5 to 11 whose primary needs are social, emotional, and mental health (SEMH).

They have recently expanded and now support children with significant complex needs, who follow a bespoke

curriculum, the Romans Field curriculum.

The school's donations are being sent to St Olga’s Church in Peterborough and then convoyed to the border of Ukraine to be shipped to the most needed areas.

The charity supporting this is ‘Stand with Ukraine’. A Ukrainian community organisation based in Peterborough.

Romans Field serves the wider Milton Keynes area but also educates children from Northampton, Luton, Buckinghamshire, and Bedfordshire.
