We are writing to introduce our School Fund to you. This is a fund operated in all Trust Schools and the Ada Lovelace Governing Body will manage it to fund projects over and above what would otherwise be possible.


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, which we have managed to fit out very well with help from savings made in the first two years while we shared premises with William Perkins. 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 and Teachers Association (the PTA), of which you are all members, which is now up and running and doing its own fund raising.  The aim is for the PTA to fund raise for equipment and resources, while the School Fund part or fully funds larger more long-term investments in the fabric of the school.  We hope to use it for inspiring projects and things that enhance the life and development of the school.


The money raised by the School Fund so far has already funded the Ada Lovelace themed sculpture for the playground to inspire the pupils and create our Ada Lovelace identity, as well as the stone benches for two areas in the playground. This year it has provided the capital funding for the new school garden, to pay for the construction of the beds and shed (above). This coming year, we would like to use the School Fund for the following:


  • Contribute to the new Astro Pitches.
  • Help create a school chapel as a place for quiet reflection.
  • Support the upgrade of the school cafe.

Donations can be one off, annually or monthly.  The following are suggested amounts for monthly contributions.

  • £10.00 monthly for each pupil (equivalent to a cup of coffee a week)
  • £20.00 monthly for each pupil (equivalent to one primary school breakfast club a week)
  • £30.00 monthly for each pupil (equivalent to one primary school after school club a week)

It’s amazing what a little from a lot of people can do.
