A Class Of Their Own

This is the dedicated page linked to the school to find out the latest updates on how the fundraising is going and why we need the extra classrooms.

The numbers of children attending the school has increased over the past few years from 113 children to 169. That's a 50% increase in just 4 years. We're a popular outstanding school and the dynamics of the community have also changed with more young families moving to the village.

The school only has 6 classrooms which now need to support 7 full classes - to avoid splitting the year groups. The temporary classroom is currently disintegrating so we need to replace or renovate it so it's fit for purpose. As a result the school, teachers, support staff, governors and parents have decided to take matters into their own hands.

The target is to raise £80,000 over the current academic year with a view to have the new classrooms installed or updated over the 2018 Summer Holidays.

So far we've raised...
