Small rural primary schools are under threat. Your money can save Fletching Primary School from closure by the council.
For the first time in our 146 year existence new government funding means we can't afford to run our school with 65 pupils. As budgets shift to a cost per pupil, we'll receive less money than we used to and basic expenses and everyday running costs will no longer be met.
East Sussex County Council have given us until 11th October 2019 to come up with a solution or they'll close us.
Your money will eradicate our budget deficit for the next two years. And increasing our pupil numbers across these two years is an easy achievement, with schools in surrounding villages and nearby towns full to capacity, and housebuilding and homebuyers on the increase. We already have a dedicated team promoting our school, with numbers on the rise despite the councils threat of closure.
And thats because pupils at Fletching School thrive, our dedicated and passionate staff, governors and parents ensure the progress pupils make whilst at Fletching is outstanding. We're a hidden gem in the heart of the Sussex countryside.
