CAPITATION AND SCHOOL FUND

CAPITATION:

As a Church of England School, we appreciate your voluntary contributions of £36 for the school Building Fund/Capitation from parents. This voluntary contribution is a payment all Church of England Schools require to maintain the school buildings and classrooms.  Each year our parents contribute £36.00 into this fund and this enables us to keep the school safe and looking attractive for the children.

Last year (2014/15) the Buildings Fund contributed towards the repair of the school building, roof, guttering and our new front entrance and foyer area.  We upgraded our ICT requirements and added additional equipment for use in the classroom and ICT suite.

SCHOOL FUND:

We also have the annual £30 voluntary contribution from parents to our school fund. Last year over 78% of parents gave £30 or more to support us in providing the extras which help make our curriculum more exciting and fun.

  • World Festival Day
