Pupils and staff at Great Dunmow Primary School raised £820 for Children in Need in a fundraising event on Friday.
Students were able to buy 'pie the teacher' raffle tickets and they also gave donations to dress up in spotty clothes.
Winners of the raffle were given the rare chance to throw a pie at a member of staff.
Head teacher Kevin Watts, said: "It was a brilliant morning, 427 pupils in the hall, all excited about having the opportunity to pie their teacher.
"The staff were fantastic in joining in and we raised more than £820, which is the most we have ever raised."
