When we need to spend money on repairing, maintaining or developing our school buildings we are required to contribute between 10% and 30% of the cost ourselves. The board of Governors relies on parents’ support to raise this money and is very grateful for parents’ generosity over the years.
We will write to parents each year to explain our plans for the school building fund.
We appeal to all parents to contribute if possible and suggest a contribution of £5 per month, per family. We must emphasise that parents are under no obligation to contribute. No child will be excluded from any activity because their parents are unable or unwilling to contribute.
The simplest way to contribute is to set up a standing order using your online banking and our account details below. If you have already done this, thank you!
