2024: the fundraising plan and how it will be spent

2024: the fundraising plan and how it will be spent

Thank you for your generosity last year. Your donations in 2023 made a huge difference to the financial support we were able to give to the school - and the experiences they could provide for our children.  

However, with ongoing pressures on school budgets, not just those at William Patten, the following activities will only be possible this year with your continued support.

  Providing additional playtime support for children at lunch-time £7,000
Providing special events for Science week, Hispanic Day and Big Arts Day £3,000
Providing gymnastics coaching - for all children from Nursery to year 5 £9,000
Providing the famous 'leaving experience' for all year 6 children - including hoodies! £3,000
Providing Place2Be provision across the school  £9,000
Providing SEND resources and equipping the Rainbow Room and Learning Forest



This is a significant undertaking with a total cost of £50,000. We are setting a more stretching target than last year for this campaign of £25,000 and will need to raise as much again from our Winter and Summer fairs and other PTFA events. We want to ensure that parents who feel able to, can donate to the school as efficiently as possible and so have set up this DonorBox page for your donations.


Do remember to tick the gift aid box if you are a UK tax payer when making your donation so that we can boost your donation through gift aid. If you are not eligible for gift aid, you can still donate through this website.

With huge thanks,

The PTFA Committee
