As a state primary school, the majority of our funding comes from the Ministry of Education. However, as we are a Decile 9 school, there is an annual shortfall in funding which must be made up from other sources or we would not be able to operate effectively or meet our annual objectives. The main sources of external funding are the Voluntary Donation (see entry in A-Z directory), the activity fee which covers the costs of educational activities and trips outside the school, and school fundraising, which takes place through two main channels – projects and community grants.
