Governors’ fund

We are grateful for the generosity of successive generations of parents who have contributed to maintaining our beautiful school buildings and other resources over the years, this continued investment really helps our school and we couldn't develop without it. 

The requested voluntary contributions have been kept at a comparably low rate by the Governing Body for 2018/2019. 

£72 per child per term

£12 per half term

£7.20 per month over 10 months

Some parents cannot afford this and offer less whilst others often contribute even more.  We are always grateful for all contributions parents are able to afford.

Maintenance fund contributions help us to accommodate increased costs, budgetary pressures and our ambitions to deliver outstanding educational facilities for all our pupils. Recent school investments include: a wireless internet system, a new nursery, new buildings on the Broadway Site, stage facilities on the Broadway Site, purchase of the land at the back of the Grove Site, new playground surfaces on the Grove Site, brand new kitchens and equipment to enable in-house catering. 

All church schools are required to manage their own maintenance fund

Is it a New Thing?

No, all church schools have had to operate maintenance funds for decades and there are parts of our school which have been beautifully built or extended by successive generations of parental contributions.  For example, the classrooms in the year 3 tower of the Broadway, and the rebuilding work at the Grove Site ten years ago.

Why Do We Need It?
