PARENT ENRICHMENT FUND
Our last meeting was on Tuesday 28 March. This year we had just over £7,000 worth of requests with just under £4,000 to allocate so, whilst we have been able to 'yes' to many of the requests for enrichment, unfortunately, we have had to disappoint some applicants. It is fantastic that so many of our teachers are volunteering to offer these extra enrichment opportunities and we are keen to continue to support as many as possible whilst the funds are available. On behalf of all the pupils who benefit from this money, we would like to thank our very generous parents for their donations.
Many parents choose to make a monthly donation and we are extremely grateful for any donation, no matter how small or infrequent. At this moment in time, our income is struggling to meet demand and we would welcome any donations that parents are able to contribute. If all parents from Year 7 to Year 13 were able to donate £1 per month, we would raise over £22,000 per year with Gift Aid. This would make a massive difference to our children's enrichment experience.

NEXT MEETING : Tuesday 10 October 2017 at 7pm in the school refectory.
