Fundraising

To provide the best possible learning environment for every child, St. Andrew’s School Association raises funds for whole-school activities and much needed capital investments at the school.

 

Here are some easy ways you can support the school through your everyday shopping:

Easyfundraising –

The UK’s biggest charity shopping fundraising site is simple to use and it's free. With over 3,300 retailers including Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, Booking.com, eBay, Boden, and M&S, do your online shopping through easyfundraising and every time you make a purchase, the retailer sends us a free donation, at no extra cost to you. To make it super easy, they have a mobile app and a donation widget reminder that you can add to your PC or laptop. To access our cause on easyfundraising please click here

AmazonSmile –

This program donates 0.5% of your eligible purchases on Amazon to a charity of your choice. All you need to do is start your shopping at smile.amazon.com. The donation will be made at no extra cost to you. Though 0.5% is not a large donation it is still a great way to take advantage of a service you're using anyways and benefit the school.

What we are currently fundraising for 

Extended and Covered Outdoor Play Space for Key Stage 1

 

Our current priority is to redevelop the outdoor play space outside the KS1 classrooms that open onto the playground. The hope is to transform it into an indoor to outdoor learning space that is usable in all seasons. This has been particularly prioritised by the school in light of the current pandemic, however once this has past, the additional learning space, and the ability to be more active outside no matter what the weather, will be highly valuable going forwards.

 

Deep Dive Learning Week

 

We’re delighted to help fund the activities around Deep Dive Learning Weeks as they provide an opportunity focus on specific areas across multiple subjects and across the school. Examples include History, Health, Wellbeing and Sustainability. (Add Geography and Fairtrade)

 

Our Library Project

 

There is no statutory requirement for schools to have a library and as such no government funding. St. Andrew’s believes that encouraging children to read widely from an early age will provide a major boost to improving literacy levels, which is a key educational objective. Our library has a key part to play in this.

 

SASA are delighted to have received a Tesco’s Bags of Help grant of £4000. With additional support from some of the University Colleges, SASA have funded the purchase of book storage trolleys, books, magazines as well as some much-needed physical improvements to the library.

 

Replacement of astro-turf and playground climbing equipment

 

SASA is also aware that the time will come when the current astro-turf and playground climbing equipment will need to be replaced, at large expense. We are therefore setting aside funds towards this each year, with the aim of easing fundraising pressures when the time comes.
