Tales of the Arabian Nights

Each year we ask parents if they will contribute to a school pot fund in October of £10 per child. This contribution can be made termly if you have more than one child. This was originally suggested by School Change Team and supported by parent governors in order to minimise the small amounts of money asked for during the year in order to provide enrichment curriculum activities that the school budget cannot stretch to.  It also cuts back hugely on administration time in school as amounts for the many whole year group or Key Stage inschool activities are booked.  Now, the school is no longer collecting cash and we are using the ParentPay facility - it is no longer viable to collect in small amounts of money as each payment transaction costs the school 50p.  Last year approximately 2/3 of families contributed to this school fund pot.  The governing body agreed that the summer term activities booked should go ahead paid for from school budget as we wished to honour the good will of those who had contributed.  We think perhaps many people just overlook the request and we do hope in October 2014 that, with reminders, those who are able to give this voluntary contribution will remember to do so.  If you overlooked this year's contribution we would very much appreciate a late contribution in September which will feed back into school budget.

Below you can see the enjoyment and wonder of the Key Stage 1 children during Tales of the Arabian Nights which was funded by the school fund pot.  Key Stage 2 children enjoyed a performance of Greek Myths and F2 were fascinated by Bloomin Poetry by the same theatre company. Pictures of these are elsewhere on the website. Story-telling at its best and such an INSPIRATION for children's own speaking and listening, drama, story-writing and reading!!! PLEASE SUPPORT enrichment in our curriculum.

PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING YOUR VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTION NEXT YEAR SO THAT ALL CHILDREN CAN CONTINUE TO BENEFIT FROM RICH EXPERIENCES TO SUPPLEMENT THE CURRICULM. THANK YOU :)
