We are raising funds for our school

23 Jul 2020

Our school, like many others, has lost thousands of pounds during the time of COVID. We have seen our income reduce as we had no income from lettings, before and after school care, school clubs and school lunches for those children not covered by universal free school meals.

At the same time we have seen increased expenditure for PPE, hand sanitiser and for the training all staff received for us to receive our Certificate of Compliance with regard to COVID-19 and risk assessment.

There has currently been no additional money received from the government.

We are excited that our fund-raising campaign run by our PTFA for our new Key Stage 2 library has now reached £600. If you can give us a donation we would be most grateful. You can donate via the link below.

Support the development of our KS2 library

Normally the Parents, Carers, Teachers, Staff and Friends Association of St Jérôme would have the opportunity to raise a substantial amount of money during the school’s summer fete. Unfortunately this year, the summer fete, as well as any other fundraising opportunities have not been possible due to the covid-19 crisis.

As a PTFA we still want to help the school with any projects they have, one of which is to develop the KS2 library. School libraries are fundamental to developing engaged readers who have the capability and inclination to read and learn beyond their years at school. In school libraries students can learn to find and use the information they need, a skill that will help them to succeed now and in the future.

Please help us to raise much needed funds to support the development of the St. Jérôme’s KS2 library by clicking donate now. As little as £1 will make a real difference!
