St Thomas' Donated Funds
School's Donated Funds
Although this fund has been in existence for many years and I know that some parents do regularly contribute to it I am writing to make all parents and carers aware of this Fund. Contributions to the fund with added Gift Aid Donations ‘take the strain’ off the school budget.
All schools continue to face huge pressure on budgets. The basic funding provision enables us to employ core teaching staff, run the school and equip the classes to a basic level to meet the requirements of the curriculum. However, our school grounds need a lot of urgent attention and maintenance.
Due to the very wet weather in the autumn term the playground surfaces have degraded very quickly. We also need to replace the sleepers that give structure and support to the playground. We have managed already to replace those behind the P.E. shed but as they were all put in at the same time they are now all in need of replacing.
We, therefore, ask that you consider setting up a regular donation to the School Donated Fund. Our current contributors donate by monthly direct debit of £5, £10 or £15 per month. Any contribution, however, big or small, will be gratefully received.
Gift Aid Declarations mean that school can claim back from the Government 25% on any net donation from a UK taxpayer.
We are mindful of the current economic climate, uncertain outlook and financial pressure continuing to be experienced by some families again, so emphasise again that this is a voluntary contribution. We are extremely grateful for all donations received.
