WHERE DO YOUR DONATIONS GO?
HOW DOES THE PFA USE THE MONEY WE RAISE?
The PFA are a registered charity and we're run entirely by volunteers, meaning every penny we raise is put towards the school. We fund initiatives that benefit children across the entire school, but which can't be funded through the school budget.
In 2021/22 the PFA made a big donation towards transforming the school playground space – including installation of a sports surface in the lower playground and astroturf in the enhanced nursery space. And in 2022/23 we made a significant donation towards the cost of the school's fantastic new sensory room.
In recent years we have met funding requests from the school to fund 50% of the touchscreen technology that has been installed into every classroom, to purchase 15 new cameras for the children to use, new lighting for the main hall to better illuminate the productions, additional chrome books and the Wonde subscription – both invaluable during Covid lockdowns.
The PFA also fund Parentmail, and pay for all the children in the school to have a festive Christmas dinner together every December. We also put funding towards the Year 6 leaving goodies, including a speical St Luke’s hoodie and a yearbook.
