In these times of austerity, we want to continue to provide the best resources for the children. However government and local authority cuts mean we can no longer afford to purchase, maintain and replace some of the quality learning resources that support our children. Currently, we have a number of IT resources in urgent need of renewal and updating; we are unable to continue to meet these costs. Our school budget does, of course, pay for the school and our teachers but it is the extra equipment and facilities which we have been able to offer in the past which are now under threat.
It is for this reason I am writing to ask you for your help in order to sustain some of our most prized resources. We are asking each family to make an annual payment of £40.00 towards school fund in September at the beginning of the academic year. All children will benefit from resources purchased and at the end of the school year the school will report on how the money is spent via the website and Rushey Greenpaper. This contribution is entirely voluntary but we hope you will feel able to support us in this way.
Children born between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2014 are due to start primary school in September 2018. -You can apply from 1 September 2017 -The closing date for applications is 11.59pm, 15 January 2018 Follow this link for more information
