"The incredible amount raised for Children In Need reflects on the truly charitable and giving nature of our staff and students," said the school's head teacher Chris Ash. "I am deeply honoured to be a part of the Dagenham Park family."

The events were organised by Natasha Trayler, who has run Children In Need at Dagenham Park for the past three years. She said: "I am so proud of everyone involved for their passion and dedication to such a worthy charity and look forward to seeing how much we can raise next year."
