Help make our school hall and outdoor facilities accessible and available to community groups and for private hire outside of school hours

by Whittington CP School PTA in Whittington, England, United Kingdom

New stretch target

If we are successful in reaching our initial funding goal, we will keep fundraising for additional facilities which will support the new community hub, including:

  • Playground or field markings for sports as requested by the community
  • Additional sports equipment  
  • Secure storage units for additional sports equipment
  • Replacing some carpet flooring with hard-wearing vinyl flooring, required due to increased traffic
  • Other items such as sound system and versatile furniture for the school hall

 Who are we?

Whittington Primary school is a desperately under-funded school which needs your backing in order to be able to start to generate much needed income.

Our school is in Whittington, a village near Lichfield in Staffordshire and we’re lucky enough to have  great community facilities, but they are in extremely high demand! Our village school has a hall, playing field and playgrounds that could be used by local businesses and the community in the evenings and at weekends for a host of different activities.

Why do we need your donation?

The school has a diverse range of children and they all deserve to be nurtured.   Times are hard and getting harder - our school receives over £500 less per pupil than schools in Birmingham, that's a £163,000 hole in our budget compared to schools 10 minutes away! We get £2,000 less PER CHILD than schools in London, a total of £630,000 every year!

We need another way to raise sustainable funds, on top of the generous donations the PTA already receives from our fabulous parents through its many fundraising activities.

We are asking our amazing village community, Aviva employees and the general public to help us to make our school a hub that will be available to community groups, local businesses and for private hire.  That way we can help secure great education in our village for current and future generations. 

What will we do with the money raised?

To make this happen we need to adapt the school in some minor but costly ways - changing existing systems and doors to securely ‘zone’ the main school from hired areas, installing key-pad entry and adapting an existing bathroom so it can be accessed from the hired areas. 

How can you help?

Please share our page on social media and ask your friends and family to do the same.  If you can please donate - we’d be very grateful!
