About Us

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.

Additional information:

The PTA

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!

Why crowdfunding?

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.

Target

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!

Beechen Cliff School PTA

We can’t do the following on our own, so we need your help. (Please) Supporting the children and families of Beechen Cliff School. The PTA is proud to launch this crowdfunding appeal to help our school in supporting those families most affected by this pandemic. It will take time for Covid restrictions to be lifted and we have identified three key areas where supporting our school is most urgently required. 1. Mental healthWe aim to raise £5000 to support the mental health services offered to the Beechen Cliff School Community. We would like to support the ongoing vital work for the ‘Solution-Focused Mental Health Programme’. This was launched in June 2020 for families and staff adversely affected by the pandemic. A need has been identified amongst 10% of our parent body who replied in the first wave of communication and are actively seeking support with their own and their family’s mental health. Lessening anxiety and depression within a family setting, will help to improve the pupil’s chance of achieving a good academic education whilst remote learning. 2.  Laptops We aim to raise £5000 to buy laptops and IT equipment. In this way we can provide practical support for our students who still do not have sufficient access to a laptop or adequate connectivity to be effective home learners. The provision of good technical support is essential in developing learning and ensuring that they are able to progress in line with their peers. 3. Clubhouse We aim to raise £10,000 The PTA funded a new all-purpose school clubhouse successfully installed as a shell just before the first lockdown. However, work still needs to be completed including the provision of running water, drainage facilities and electricity. During  September -December 2020 the clubhouse was used as an emergency satellite canteen to feed the masses. Supporting these vital works will bring immediate benefits in covid times and longer term resourcing for the wider community, in both social and sporting terms, as a fully functioning school facility. To ensure a level educational playing field, the PTA is starting this crowdfunding campaign now to help support every member of our community navigate the implications of the pandemic lockdowns and uncertainty. So why Crowdfunding? It’s a great way to achieve a fundraising target through a group of people all coming together to put funds into the same pot and encouraging others to do the same. The larger the group or ‘crowd’ formed, the more money we raise so the key to any crowdfunding appeal is getting the message out there via all of our networks – social media including messaging apps like What’s App. Please help us to make this possible by donating what you feel comfortable giving and please pass on the appeal details on your own social media network to family, friends and your other contacts to help spread our message. This is really important within our local community. Every single donation helps and every single share helps too! To set up a regular donation, please click on the DONATE button. You can choose how much to donate each month, and we can also claim Gift Aid on your donation, boosting it by 25%. This can be cancelled and controlled by yourself, at any time should your circumstances change. Of course, Regular Giving may not suit everyone, so if you prefer, you can choose to make a one-off donation to help fund our vital wish list of projects. Thank you so much for your support of the PTA and for sharing this campaign.
