Membership of Committees

Governing Board Informataion

Fund Raising Committee

Our Governors formed a Committee to review fundraising iniatives in order to raise the 10% funding required for the new building in Key Stage 2. This continued for Key Stage 1 and in 2012 for the new school Kitchen.

How you can help us!

The Committee also compiles a 'List of Contacts' that could help us:

  • Do you know anyone famous?
  • Could you offer a raffle prize?
  • Do you have a skill/profession/talent that you could offer? eg. teaching music, dancing, driving lessons, hairdressing, car mechanics, cooking, babysitting, gardening, ironing, baking a cake, literally anything!
  • Do you have any access to funding through charitable groups, employers, personal contacts, that might help our school?

We may be able to utilise this information for additional fundraising at a later date.

If you think you can help in any way, please contact the school office. There is a form available to fill in and return "for the attention of the Governors' Fundraising Committee".

 Annual Parental Questionnaires

Towards the end of the Summer Term parents are asked to complete and return a Parental Questionnaire. Feedback from the answers given are recorded and analysed, with the aim of improving our school environment, our teaching and our pupil's learning at St. Mary's Catholic Primary School, Studley.
