Last year our fundraising total reached a dizzying…
The classroom canopies that we have been saving for are due to arrive soon!
FoML has contributed £25k to buy these wonderful canopies. The difference they will make to how the children can use their outside space will be amazing. Thank you! Your hard work and donations have made this project possible.
Other ways in which our funds have helped the school over the last 12 months:
£2000 towards the new library,
£2000 towards classroom enhancement activities,
£2000 towards school photocopying,
£1295 towards ICT equipment.
Our new fundraising target for this year is £15,000
Ways that we would like to help the school include:

- ITC: Buying new Learning Pads for use across the school
- Improvements to the audio and lighting equipment in the school hall
- Helping to create a “music room” for the school to enjoy
We’ve had our first Cake Bake of the year. Lion class raised a fantastic £177. Half of funds raised go directly to buy extra resources for your class, so a big well done Lions!
