Weʼre raising £14,000 to help fund our Covid catch up and summer enrichment programme.
- 10 days to go
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are walking/running/cycling from Holy Trinity, Sloane Square to Christ Church, New Zealand..... and back again from 1st March - 31st March 2021. Please join us in our Federation Fundraiser as we virtually race 30,000 miles around the world to raise £14,000 towards our Covid catch up and summer term enrichment programme.
**We can claim Gift Aid on our donations retrospectively if you and your donation do not remain anonymous **
Christ Church & Holy Trinity are two one form entry schools in Chelsea. They joined as a federation in September 2019. Four hundred children attend our schools. Our two schools have one curriculum, a united staff that work closely together led by one Leadership Team. Our high aspirations are for every child irrespective of which school they go to.
A core part of the ethos of the federation is to provide a broad and exciting curriculum that stimulates a love of learning no matter their background or interests. Opening their eyes to new thinking, ideas and opportunities is extremely important to our way of teaching and the children’s learning. Children need to experience an enormous diet of experiences in order understand the world around them and how they as individuals can thrive in it.
Our parents have been incredibly long suffering and resourceful during this second home learning time. Many have taught their children while juggling their own work and younger siblings. We think so many of them have done a fantastic job under very challenging circumstances. As a school we have tried hard to keep connected with our families and support them with what to teach and sending lots of enrichment work and activities home during the long dark weeks at home.
Despite all this hard work and commitment to the children’s learning and wellbeing there is no doubt our children have missed out on a lot of what we would want for them.
We are committed to making the summer term in our federation schools full of hard work to catch up and plug gaps in children’s learning where we find them. This is obviously in terms of literacy and numeracy core skills. But this is not all. We are planning on giving the children meaningful creative, physical, social, and cultural activities and experiences.
Overall, most children have missed out on visits, teamwork activities, social interactions and engaging in a plethora of hands-on experiences we want for them. Our catch up programme will include all these things.
At a time when we have lost out on many of our usual school incomes, lettings, and big fundraising events we want to spend more money on our children! Our budgets in the two schools are cut for curriculum enrichment so we are aiming to find solutions to spend more on this rather than less.
There are three areas where we would like to raise funds for:
• A heavily subsidised after school club for every child in every year group which amounts to 140 hours of extra fun for the children – at minimal cost to the parents.
• The after school club activities will include cookery, board games, modelling and outdoor fun. Staffing costs and resources for these clubs amounts to approximately £12,000.
• Specialist speakers and visitors in the school, for example Scientists or Artists in residence. This is at a cost of approximately £2,500.
• Subsidised Trips for every year group to take place in June and July. We hope to take the children to theatres, museums, exhibitions and even to the seaside as well as park trips and outdoor activities. This will be at a cost of £500 per class, therefore approximately £7,000 in total.
How are we going to raise the funds we need for all of this?
We are proposing that our whole community joins in on the most enormous virtual sprint from Holy Trinity School Sloane Square to Christ Church. NOT Christ Church School Chelsea though, Christ Church NEW ZEALAND!
