We are so excitied to be in partnership with The Strawberry Bank in Meriden, as they have chosen to support us as their charity! They have already presented us with over £850 raised at two quiz nights, provided the prosecco and staff to run a prosecco bar at our Summer Fair in July, and have been instrumental in supporting out first ever Spring Ball, which we held at the Strawberry Bank in March 2023. We have already booked the venue for March 2024! (See details below)

The Story So Far....
Lockdown very much curtailed our fundraising opportunities during 2020 and 2021, however we were not to be beaten and had to think more creatively! We held raffles, virtual pop-up shops for Christmas, Mother's Day and Father's Day. We also organised a 'Break the Rules Days', Enterprise Week, a Christmas Fair for the children, and they even got to meet Santa! Luckily, we also received some generous donations from local businesses. Despite that pesky virus, during the school year 2020/2021 we managed to raise nearly £5900! Some of this was used to purchase new technology for school, including interactive televisions for classes and extra ipads.
Where's the money going?
During 2021-2022 we updated our outside area, starting with the Early Years area, we purchased some new equipment such as sand and water trays, a climbing frame etc. There have been three large storage sheds purchased too, to keep all the Early Years outdoor equipment in.
For the rest of school, we improved and extend the current trim-trail and made the ground under and around it safer with a rubberised material.
We also purchased a commemorative Platinum Jubilee badge for every child.
During 2022-2023 our fundraising efforts were very much welcomed as we replaced the school set of iPads, which was long overdue!
