Stephanie Green, marketing manager at the school, told the Recorder: "The Teddy Bear Picnic was a great success.
"It provided a warm atmosphere in which the children and staff enjoyed their picnic and the lovely sunshine."
The Gosh charity uses donations to provide vital support for families and children, research into children's health, any refurbishments the site may need, and it funds for life-saving medial equipment.
"The highlight of the afternoon for our little ones was the surprise visit from our school's mascot 'Harwood Bear'," said Stephanie.
