What is a School Fund and why is it needed?
Ss John and Monica’s is a Voluntary Aided (VA) Catholic School and, like all other VA schools, we have to provide for 10% of the school’s upkeep and improvement. This money is not provided by the government. Any voluntary contributions to school fund go towards specific items that the school needs e.g additional books for our school library.
We ask for a voluntary contribution of £5.00 for School Fund and £5.00 for School Building Fund, per family, on an annual basis. Our School Building contribution this year will go towards the following:
* Painting of the remaining KS2 Classrooms
We are very lucky to have a thriving 'Fundraising Committee' comprised of parents who regularly organise fundraising events such as coffee mornings, Summer Fetes, Christmas Fetes and Whole School Raffles.
During the course of the year we also hold simple half-termly fundraisers in school. This will be an opportunity to raise some much needed funds and have fun in the process. This will be in addition to our usual Advent and Lenten fundraising for charity. The monies raised in 2019-20 will go towards the following:
* New small playground equipment
* New KS1 Playground wall play boards
* A plaque to commemorate 50 Years as a School
