Beauclerc Infant and Nursery School is a small, ‘early years’ school with 150 pupils. It is supported by the PTA which are currently fundraising for the 2020/21 academic year - in particular to significantly improve the IT provision within the school, which is both dated and very limited, with fewer than 15 working laptops.
The aim for 2020/21 is to provide a minimum of 30 new Chromebook laptops and licences which can be used across the school. We would also like to be able to provide ‘Bee bots’ (programmable floor robots) and cameras to develop early programming and observation skills.
IT confidence is essential for ALL children, and equipment which helps develop skills and enhance life chances is a MUST HAVE. Post Covid, we need to ensure Beauclerc is in the best position possible to provide this for our children - not only now, but in the coming months and years.
Please help support this initiative by clicking on the DONATE button. You will have a choice of making a one-off donation or a regular monthly gift to Beauclerc Infant and Nursery School. If you would like to launch your own, separate sponsored event linked to this campaign (whether it be running/walking/litter picking or setting your own personal challenge), use the blue ‘Launch Your Own Campaign’ in the photo above.
The Beauclerc Infant and Nursery School PTA has been set up to support the school and the children, primarily by raising vital funds to provide social, emotional and educational experiences and resources for the children, that can’t be funded from the school’s central budget. In 2019/20 this included the replenishment of the school's stock of reading books.
With many of the usual fundraising activities, such as the Summer and Christmas fairs being curtailed by Covid and simultaneously the school budget being under huge pressure, our fundraising becomes even more vital. This year, we have had to think differently about fundraising and look for different opportunities – for example by launching this crowdfunding page!
Crowdfunding is a great way to hit a fundraising target, through a group of people coming together to put funds into the same pot and encouraging others to do the same. We can also claim Gift Aid (where applicable) on your donation - boosting each one by 25%.
The larger the group or ‘crowd’, the more money we raise, so the key to any crowdfunding appeal is getting the message out to all our networks. Please help us to do this by sharing this page within your own friend and family networks. Every single donation and share really helps.
This year (2020/21) we would like to raise £10,000. So far, with the few activities and events we have managed to arrange, we have raised around £2,000 – so we have a very long way to go… Please help us to plug the gap to support our children and their learning.
Your support is greatly valued and we are grateful for every donation. Thank you!
