Help us improve school facilities!
Our School Fund is built up from financial donations from parents/carers and is held in a separate bank account to other funding. It has a very important function in paying for additional needs as the school is established and grows. At Ada Lovelace we are so fortunate to have our wonderful new building. However, as we move forward there are always further needs in a school, which this School Fund can support.
Use of the School Fund will be decided by the Governing Body in consultation with the Parents Teachers Association (the PTA), of which you are all members. We hope to use it for inspiring projects and things that add to the life and fabric of the school. The money raised by the School Fund in 2020/2021 has already been allocated to fund an Ada Lovelace themed sculpture for the playground to inspire the students and create our Ada Lovelace identity, and more benches for two areas in the playground.
In the academic year 2021/2022 we have used the School Fund to enhance the Digital equipment for the different departments for use in regular classes and also wider learning. For example, more VR headsets, digital measuring equipment for the Science department, Duke of Edinburgh equipment, PE digital equipment to film sporting events and for use as a coaching tool plus micro-bit robotic equipment for the Computing department. Furthermore, a generous sum was given to our English department to buy a large stock of books to establish a reading room. Lastly, our Performance Centre has been upgraded with high specification digital projectors, which we are very excited about.
We will be thinking of the next round of spending at the beginning of the next academic year. One consideration might be to upgrade our sports facilities through the purchase of new equipment and excitingly a potential new Astro Turf Pitch.
As a guide we encourage parents to select an amount that they are able to donate.
- £10.00 monthly for each student
