All of the money that we collect is held in our private School Fund. This includes money for visits, Early Bird Club, after-school clubs, and from fundraising events e.g. our 'Christmas Fair', Nursery Obstacle Race, Rudolph Christmas Cards, 'Film Nights' and for external charity fundraising e.g. 'Jeans for Genes', 'Children in Need', 'Comic Relief'.
In 2018/19, our income was £7,586.81 and our expenditure was £5,211.81. During the year we used some of the fundraising to buy 'extras' for the children and school. This included prizes for competitions, refreshments for events, Christmas presents for children, paint for the school premises, tables and chairs, books, art + craft & gardening equipment, cookery ingredients, and science materials. The focus for our fundraising spending in 2018/19 is a re-vamp of the Key Stage One playground, including decking and seating. We also successfully bid for National Lottery funding of £10,000 to buy a large climbing frame for the playground.
Our School Fund is externally audited annually by Mrs Carol Pace, a local accountant.
