We’re delighted to report that the school is now using 15 additional Chromebooks (laptops) and a charging trolley that were bought using £5500 of the funds donated via Fund St Matthew’s.
This is the first item that has been funded using the Fund St Matthew’s donations “beyond £60k”. Other projects which are to be funded soon include outdoor learning equipment, a reorganisation of the library, and a roof canopy outside the dining hall.
We are thrilled to announce that in December 2020, 19 months after starting the campaign, we reached our target of £60,000. This was the amount by which the school’s funding was cut in its 2019-20 budget.
“I really can’t thank parents and carers enough… This has made a huge difference to the school over the last year… Because of this money, we have been able to employ teaching assistants to support children’s learning, and confidently make decisions such as our recent investment in Chromebooks for teaching computing.” –
Tony Davies (Headteacher), Dec 2020
What happens now?
Although we have filled the 2019-20 shortfall, many parents want to continue supporting the school. This support will allow it to make improvements and investments in our children’s education and wellbeing that would not otherwise be possible. Please check the Home page for more information.
