What we spend the funds on

How the money is spent
We feel that it is really important to advertise the amount of money raised, particularly from organised events – as everyone puts so much time and effort into making them a success. The amounts are advertised in the PA newsletter or on the PA Notice-board.
In the main, the PA funds are for the ‘extras’ not provided by the school budget. It is very rewarding to see children enjoying the new resources and equipment that we have been able to fund. Through regular discussions with the Headteacher, we endeavor to spend funds in ways that will benefit all children across all areas of the school and curriculum.
