New stretch target

With every £100 we raise we can purchase another chromebook and support more children. 

Every year the PSA work with High Down Infants school to identify where they need support and raise money to enhance the children's learning experience. In the past we have assisted with playground equipment, reading books, school trips, theatre visits, murals and learning resources. All of these things make the children's learning experience more fun, creative and playful. The role of the PSA in raising additional funds to supplement school budgets has been ever more needed over recent years in light of budget cuts and less public spending. 

The PSA fundraise through events and participatory activities such as Christmas/Harvest/Summer fairs, school discos, craft activities as well as organising the Christmas cards and school tea towels. On an average year we raise up to £12,000 for the infant school. 

COVID-19 has enormously impacted how the PSA can operate. It is likely that this will have large knock on effect to how much money we can raise to support the school. Without large events we know that our income will be smaller but we also know that in light of the unfolding crisis our support to the school is never more needed. 

The infant school have identified that many pupils will face a disadvantage in the event of school closures or self isolation periods, children without access to technology will be unable to access much of the remote curriculum. The PSA and the infant school are not willing to accept that this crisis will leave children behind and so we are raising funds to support the purchase of refurbished Chromebooks to be used by children who do not have access to computers at home.  

While we would usually raise money in more engaging ways we are asking parents to donate directly to this Crowdfunder to enable the school to purchase the much needed equipment. In return the PSA will work to deliver fun activities that parents can access including colouring in trails and bake off recipes that families can take part in remotely. 

We hope to be able to get back to arranging fun events soon but until then any support that you can offer us and the infant school would be enormously helpful. 

With much gratitude,
