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