Funding Request Guidance

Following discussion at the Parent Council regarding requests for financial assistance, the following criteria have been drawn up to provide guidance for those making an application:

  • Whole school – Would the donation result in something that is of benefit to the whole school, or a group of pupils?
  • Legacy Value – Would the donation result in something that can be reused or shared by others in the school in the future?
  • Community Benefit – Would the donation result in some benefit the community beyond the school?
  • School Vision and Values – How is the purpose of the donation aligned to the School Vision and Values?
  • Pupil Contribution – Where there is little, or no, widespread legacy value, have the pupils who will directly benefit from any donation made any attempts to raise funds themselves?
  • Parental Support – Where there is little, or no, widespread legacy value, have the parents of the pupils who will directly benefit from any donation made any attempts to support the venture?

Applications should be presented to the Parent Council before the October holidays each year.
