What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Our school is a small, tight-knit community with children and staff who constantly strive to improve and maximise their potential. However, not all children find it easy to do so in the mainstream classroom setting. Therefore, we are aiming to raise enough money to fund an outdoor learning and nurture pod where small groups could take part in learning activities more suited to their specific needs. These groups may include children with particular social, emotional or behavioural difficulties or those who simply need a quiet space with fewer distractions. We also hope to utilise the pod for other groups of children who need to be challenged further at their attainment level, after school clubs and other valuable learning experiences.

In light of this, myself and my colleague, Mrs. Tallentire, will be attempting to run five half marathons in five days in the Teesdale area of County Durham during our final half term of the academic year (25th May - 5th June 2018), with the help of Evenwood Road Runners.

As a school, we will also be holding other fundraising events such as Cake Sales.

We would greatly appreciate any donations which would help us inch closer to our target and help give our wonderful children a fantastic learning space!

    Was a pupil at St Mary's in the late 1950's. Will never forget the encouragement and support given to me by Pop Burns (Headmaster) and his lovely wife who was also one of the staff.

    I was a pupil at St Mary’s back in the early 60’s, I’m so pleased to be able to support this venture. Keep up the good work.
