Governors Building Fund

As St Edmund’s is a Voluntary Aided School; we do need your help. The education and day to day costs are funded by the Local Authority, however, the Government only fund 90% of any building and maintenance works that are required this means the school and its community to need to raise the remaining 10%.

The Governors Building Fund is an annual donation of £45 per year per child or a bi-annual donation of £22.50 per child and is necessary to manage the School and its buildings. In turn, this enables us to provide the best environment for your child's education.

When students join us in September, they will be able to enjoy the buildings and surroundings that past parents have enabled the school to build and create by making their yearly contribution to the fund. The Sports Hall, Technology block and the new Wright building of further classrooms on the site where the Lodge used to stand in Upper Arundel Street, could not have taken place without parental contributions.

Parents will be sent a Standing Order Form to complete and you are asked to hand this in at the new Parents Evening that you have been allocated. Letters are due to be sent out after half term. Standing order is the only method of payment. 

If you would like to discuss the Building Fund please email: finance@saintedmunds.org.uk

ParentPay

ParentPay is the system we use to have the freedom to make payments online for school meals, school trips, music lessons etc. It is a secure website and many parents have been reassured that the money reaches the school quickly and safely and that their child no longer has the responsibility of carrying money into school.

A letter including a username and password will be sent to all new Year 7 parents.

The benefits of using ParentPay are:

 As an online payment system you can pay for lunches, trips and other items any time of day, seven days a week.

  • You can ensure any money paid for lunches is only spent on food purchased at school.
  • You can view the items your child purchased for lunch.
  • You eliminate the need to find cash for your child to take to school and the risk of your child losing money.
  • You only need to log on once to pay for all your children at the school.
  • You can see trips online even if your child forgets to bring letters home.
  • You can guarantee items have been paid.

Language Choice

At St Edmund’s we try, where possible, to give students choices in their personal education plan. Pupils are either taught French or Spanish and usually study these into GCSE. Please could you discuss this with your child and complete the Language Choice form by clicking the link below. The deadline for return is:

FRIDAY 1st APRIL 2022  12.00 noon. 

We do need to make you aware that although we endeavour to give these choices, sometimes we are not able to accommodate due to extenuating circumstances ie: friendship group preferences/issues that are highlighted from the current primary schools.
