Thanks to You

How we've spent the money you helped us to raise

Following a fundraising event the money is banked straight away. It is at our PTFA Committee meetings, that the decisions on how to spend the money are agreed. Sometimes, Miss Dyer and the teaching staff will have a 'wish list' of items for the PTA to consider funding. There are also some things that the PTA buy or contribute to an an annual basis. These include:-

  • Year 6 Leavers Party and Hoodies - approx. £350.00
  • Christmas Lunches - Crackers, decorations, etc - approx. £60.00
  • School Sun hats for reception children - approx £140

We always endeavour to spend our funds in ways that will benefit all our children across all areas of the school but there are times when we will make a purchase on behalf of a certain class or Keystage.

 

Last year we spent

  • £2,616 on school swimming
  • £1,314 on ICT equipment
  • We gave the KS2 classes £300 each which they spent on school trips and equipment
  • £800 on new equipment for the school's samba band

Thanks to your support over the last year, we have raised a grand total of over £6,500 which includes:

  • an amazing £3,098 from our second Christmas Fayre in the square
  • a brilliant £1,204 from the Summer Fayre
  • a spectacular £505 from the Pumpkin Party
  • an incredible £704 from the RagBag
