For the past few years, the Governors have invited parents to make a termly voluntary contribution of £5.00 to School Funds to enable us to provide a broader and wider range of activities as part of the curriculum which might otherwise be unaffordable. The voluntary donations go into the School Fund rather than the main school budget and having this extra contribution would really make a difference, especially at this time when budgets are reducing. The School Fund is for extra things for the children to make their learning and experience of school as exciting and as stimulating as possible.
The School Fund is for things such as;
- Paying for some coaches for shorter trips and sporting events
- Subsidising visiting theatre companies
- Presents at Christmas from Santa
- Easter eggs / activities
- Leavers’ gifts at the leavers’ performance and Year 2 leavers’ party
- Improvements to school such as playground equipment / stage
We appreciate that at the moment everybody’s budgets are being stretched with the increased cost of living. This is an entirely voluntary contribution and we really appreciate any support you can offer. If you feel that you would like to make this contribution, please hand any cash in a named envelope to the office or alternatively payment can be made through the School Gateway App.
Thank you so much for your support.
