Voluntary School Donations

Why do we need your support?

We are extremely proud of our school community and of our children's achievements. The success of Larkrise Primary School is a testament to the partnership between home and school and your ongoing support as parents and carers.

You will be aware that the school's success has happened during a period of considerable financial constraint within the education sector. We have worked hard over a number of years to provide excellent educational opportunities for our children at a time when there has been a real-term reduction in spending per pupil over the last five years. The current economic climate, inflation, and the rising cost of energy that we are all experiencing are also putting more pressure on school budgets than ever before.

Our new Voluntary School Donation initiative is an opportunity for parents and carers to support the quality of education through making one-off or regular voluntary contributions to be used directly to provide resources for use in the classroom and the school grounds.

Ideally, we would not like to make such a request, but we also recognise that many parents and carers have expressed an interest in such a scheme.

What will we spend the funds on?

This funding will be used to provide:

New and additional resources for our Inspire Curriculum with an emphasis on English, STEM Subjects and the Arts.

Development of our resources for Special Educational Needs.

Redeveloping our school site to enhance our learning environment both inside and outside. In the first instance, we would like to focus on the following areas:

Year 1 Outdoor Learning Space

Year 2 Outdoor Learning Space


For more information about the work we have already achieved and future development plans, visit our website: https://www.larkriseprimary.org/site-and-resources-development/.

We will use these additional funds to have the greatest impact on school resources wherever possible by working alongside the Friends of Larkrise and other community organisations to maximise funding via grant applications.

We will give further information about individual projects throughout the year and report developments in the newsletter.

Thank you so much for giving. Your donation will not just help our current pupils, but also the ones to come.
