This collection will help provide small payments to help any of our families struggling with the effects of the Coronavirus. Self-isolation, workplace closures and other measures we may see in the coming weeks and months are likely to have a significant financial impact. This will be felt hardest by those managing their budgets the most tightly.
With that said, we must remain hopeful that effects will not be so severe. So in the event that funds raised here are not needed by individual families they will be donated to Upton Primary School Parents’ Association. This will help fund additional resources, equipment and the real ‘little extras’ that make the learning experience at our fabulous school so great.
This brilliant article goes some way to explaining exactly why this fund is necessary: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/mar/10/school-closures-coronavirus-care
