Since 2008 BSFA have raised over £50,000. Janene our Chair holds regular meetings with Mrs Town to discuss items that the school would like BSFA to fund. The suggestions are then discussed at BSFA Committee meetings.
Sometimes suggestions will be as a result of the children themselves asking for something, recently it was highlighted through the children's survey that the children wanted renewed art supplies. At other times it will be for resources to improve a particular area of the curriculum or school environment, such as I.T where the BSFA are funding 6 curriculum specific Probots and 10 new laptops. BSFA funds are spent on the ‘extras’ that are not provided by the school’s budget, thus making our children’s learning experiences so much more fulfilling and exciting.
Here is a list of items donated to the school during the past few years – we think you will be impressed.
