Here is all you need to know what the PTA is funding this year, why these contributions are essential to the school and how much we have left to raise and how you can help - we hope the graphics help bring it to life!
The PTA has committed £29,000 to the school this year including the annual contribution of £15,000 to I.T. and an additional £10,000 towards the new outdoor classroom – you can find some photos from the launch of the outdoor classroom at the bottom of this blog.
But why does the school need these contributions from the PTA?
Julie Cook, School Business Manager, tells us below:
Now onto how much has been raised and what is left to raise?
We have been blown away by your amazing support to date this year - Clarefest alone raised an unprecedented £11,800! Thank you to everyone involved. That has helped raised a massive £23,000 already, but we have £6,200 to raise to reach the £29,200 we have committed to the school.
Please help us plug the gap by supporting the Summer Fete on Saturday 2nd July. Buy your tickets from our website now (adults £2.50 in advance, or £3 on the gate. Children go free) and check our blog for how you can help in other ways. We look forward to seeing you there!
If you can't make the fete but would still like to help, please make a one-off or monthly direct donation (with Gift Aid if eligible) through our localgiving page - click here to take you straight there.
Thank you so much!
