The Royal British Legion works to ensure that the people of the United Kingdom remember all those who have lost their lives on active service to the Crown and honours the service of the Armed Forces and veterans and the contribution of their families.

At St Martin’s School, we believe that remembering, commemorating and giving thanks to the people who have kept us and our families safe is important. We teach compassion, respect and the importance of charity.

Each year we mark Armistice Day with a two minute silence and our charity prefects sell poppies to their friends, teachers, our families and to the wider community.
