Community Fund

We are fundraising to provide Christmas Hampers to our families most in needAcross 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.

January 2021: Community Fund provides 408 Families with Hampers!

 

In November 2020 we created our Community Fund and launched our first campaign, providing each pupil premium family with a Christmas Hamper.

We raised over £5,000 and look at the amazing hampers here …


 

In the long term, we 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.

Your support will be put into the local communities we serve.  All money donated to our community Fund will be managed by BPET and will be distributed with care as part of a specific campaign. This page will report on the money raised and the good causes your contribution has enabled.

THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUPPORT
