I am writing to explain a few of the changes we will be making in order to try to save money due to the funding difficulties that our school is currently facing.
We will no longer be sending out paper copies of letters in children’s book bags but instead we will make them available on the website and alert you via a text message. If parents require a paper copy of the letter it will be available from the school office.
Please look out for the club letters that will be on the website this afternoon and available to book from tomorrow, 11th May, at 4.00pm.
This will save money not just on paper, but also on staff time as putting letters into book bags takes up classroom time. Therefore, from now on, if we are asked to send out letters to all the children in the class or school (for instance flyers for children’s activities , birthday party invitations) we will be asking for a small donation to school funds.
We are also going to ask for a donation to school funds for signing passport application forms. There will be a sign in the school entrance hall with suggested donation amounts.
Finally for now, we will be having a ‘donation of the month’ box in each classroom into which we ask parents and families for donations of much needed consumable items e.g. masking tape, whiteboard pens etc. Please look out for your child’s class ‘donation of the month’ on their classroom board.
The governors, staff and I are hoping that by making small changes we will be able to continue to provide the excellent education and support that you and your children deserve and expect from Iver Heath Infant School and Nursery.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call in and see me.
Mrs J Baker
