Shoreham Village School is a small primary school with approximately 95 pupils located in the village of Shoreham in Kent and because of our nurturing approach, attract a high percentage of pupils with SEND. Our school also has high levels of disadvantaged pupils from families who receive benefits or who are in poverty. Our building is small and spaces for teaching small groups or individuals who need extra support are severely limited and in communal areas.
We would like to be able to offer a room for pupils to learn in a quiet, dedicated space with appropriate resources on hand to support their needs.
We love music in our school and value the benefits that music brings to all pupils. Having a dedicated room that could also be used to teach small group or one to one music lessons would extend what we could achieve with a greater range of pupils.
We currently use an outdoor room as a resources storage space and we would like to move the resources out into different storage and use the room to create a dedicated learning space.
How the money will be spent:
Insulating the roof and the floor: this will keep the space warm in the winter & cool in the summer.
Lighting, heating & electrical: the basics.
Fire door: changing the current door for a fire door.
Burglar and fire alarm systems: it's crucial that we're able to keep the space safe and secure.
Built-in furniture and storage: this will enable to space to remain clutter-free.
Other interior finishes such as floor coverings & fire retardant coating.
Labour for the above work.
Alongside this Crowdfunder campaign we are applying for grants from sources such as the Screwfix Foundation, Music For All, local music groups and companies. We're also planning to hold more fundraising events in the coming year including a Circus. We will also be approaching local building material stores for in-kind donations.
