Fundraising

Jam on the bread? Icing on the cake? That little bit extra? 

Fundraising for those extras, like subsidised school trips or additional equipment, such as an outdoor football table, or new toys for our preschool, is a vital part of school activity.

Many of our parents choose to regularly donate to the school through a Gift Aid standing order – please consider joining them! Monies raised in this way are not spent on staff or essentials like heating or books and pens, but on those little, and big, extras that make all the difference. We will always tell you what we have spent your donations on.

In 2017 we ran the excellent Buy A Book Appeal which raised over £2000, all spent on wonderful new books. Each donor (over £10) also had a personalised book plate added to the book, to record their generosity for generations of school children to come.

Our next big challenge is raising funds for an all weather sports pitch on the school grounds, on the site of the old staff car park and school house. This will be a significant fund raising and bid writing exercise for our school.

We also have an active, dedicated group of parents and friends who help organise many events throughout the school calendar, such as ‘Chocaholics’ Coffee Morning, Summer Fayre, refreshments at the Christmas performance and Sports Day. We always welcome new parents and their ideas! You can help with a one off event, or get involved in planning a schedule of activities for the year.These fundraising events also contribute towards the fun things in school life.
