Regular monthly donations set-up by you, our parents are incredibly important as not only do they allow us to plan for the future, they enable us to offer your children enrichment beyond that which can be funded by the money we receive from the government; which as you know, isn’t enough.
Without these monthly donations we wouldn’t be able to purchase equipment that both enriches your child’s learning and funds capital projects which improve your child’s learning environment. They really are crucial to the success of our school and your child. Take a look at what parent donations went towards in 2018-2019.
Currently, a fifth of our parents are part of our Regular Giving scheme and the amount they will collectively raise this year is £113k. Sounds a lot doesn’t it? However, if you look at the projects we’re funding this year, it is a drop in the proverbial ocean:
Sixth Form area - £190,000
New drama studio- £75,000
New computers - £40,000
Classroom refurbishments - £30,000
Cafeteria refurbishment- £200,000
What happens if we don’t increase our regular donations? Well, we will need to make some difficult choices in terms of the exciting projects we plan for every year, and the level of enrichment we are able to offer our students. But with our parents’ help, we won’t need to do this. You can set-up your monthly donation below or if you want to go old school, you can download a copy of the standing order form and return to us. Don’t forget to Gift Aid your donation too!
Have we done enough to convince you to sign-up? How about this as food for thought: if 50 families agreed to donate £35 every month with Gift Aid, we’d have an additional £25,000 to invest in your child’s future at Becky High. And, if one year group donated £50 every month we would have over half the amount needed to fund the cafeteria refurbishment. Not bad eh?
