Fund Raising Plans and Spends
Fund Raising Plans and Spend
Any project undertaken is done with consultation and agreement with the school, governors, parents, children and any other necessary parties.
There are a wide variety of fundraising events, some more profitable than others, but raising money is not always the only objective. Improving partnerships between parents and teachers and between home and school plays a vital part in events too.
Short- and long-term projects are identified in the plan at meetings.
How Funds are Spent
Average annual funds raised = £4,000
- Annual Projects - funds allocated for projects for extra activities that enhance the children’s educational experiences during the year. Requests are assessed on submission to the committee, but have previously included whole school trips, new musical equipment, new reading books amongst many other things…
- “The Big Fund” - these funds are set aside for a big campaign, currently this is for an ICT upgrade project within school.
- Running Costs - which cover the costs of operating the PTFA, such as PTA UK membership, insurances, expenses for key events that are paid upfront.
