During the Covid-19 pandemic, Pewsey Vale School has been working extremely hard to provide a safe environment in which students can learn and succeed. Students are separated into 'bubbles' to enhance their safety and minimize disruption to learning. We know that this is challenging due to the finite amount of space this small school has within school buildings, but there is plenty of space outside.
We want to provide an environment for our students that is excellent. To help the students at the school, now and into the future, we want to provide a permanent canopy structure to be situated outside the school hall - this will provide a sheltered area that students can use for dining and relaxing, as well as for reading and learning. During the pandemic this will provide a distanced space for use by a 'bubble' and, beyond the pandemic, the area can be used for multiple purposes come rain or shine!
The canopy will cost in the region of £16,000. Towards this total, the PTFA can already contribute £8,000. We believe that working with the school and local community, we can raise the further £8,000 to make the covered outdoor space a reality for the school.
We are asking parents, grandparents and other family members, friends, local supporters and businesses to pledge a donation to this cause. It is not something that the school is able to secure funding for now and so we would like to fund the canopy and make this happen!
As an incentive for pledging we would like to offer:
- A Public Thank You! - For donations of £25+ we can thank you on social media
- A Personal Thank You! - For donations of £100+ you can receive a thank you letter from a student at the school
- A Permanent Thank You! - For donations of £500+ we can include your name on a plaque to be installed at the new canopy at Pewsey Vale School
(Please give contact details if you wish to be recognized in this way: name, email address, postal address, Facebook and Twitter details).
We have set a target date to raise £8,000 by 24th April 2021 so that we can get the canopy installed in mid 2021.
Any excess funds raised once the canopy is purchased will be used for enhancing the new outdoor area with tables, planters, etc (and beyond that, funds will be used for other school improvement plans).
PLEASE help us to reach our target by pledging, sharing and promoting this campaign with us.
From the students, staff, governors and PTFA at Pewsey Vale School, we really appreciate your support....
