Community Fund

Across the eight BPET schools, 22% of children qualify for Pupil Premium* That means that at least 510 children, 408 families, across our Trust are classified as disadvantaged and we know that many of them and their families are living in relative poverty**.

“We believe that, within our community is the power to help.”

So we created  “Community Fund” which looks to raise funds from across our school, supplier and partner communities to help offer support to our families most in need.  In Autumn 2020 we provided families with 408 Christmas Hampers.

The long term goal will be to have further ideas to extend the offer of support to include contributing to essential school uniform, providing IT connectivity for Home Learning (be it a device or ongoing access to the internet) or the ability for pupils to attend holiday clubs and go on trips.

 

For the 2021-22 Academic Year each school in the Trust is going to run a one-day fundraising event to contribute to the Community Fund and that will be used to assist with funding for an end of year residential trip.

 

THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUPPORT
