"Our fundraising does not buy luxury items but essential things, which cannot be met within school funds. The current school budget equates to approx £130 per child per year. To put this in perspective photocopying a newsletter costs £42 and replacing a Smartboard lightbulb costs £100. The school needs to replace 10 bulbs this year. The choice should not be between maintenance and educational opportunities, this is where the Parent Council is stepping in for the first time to buy equipment."
