Money Tips for Parents & Carers

Home A-Z Contents List Back to the School Office

 

Our Administration Team have spent a lot of time picking up loads of tips on how to make money go further and to raise funds for school.  These now have a page all of their own.  Some of them will help us to make our resources go further as a school, and thereby have more to spend on the pupils, and some of them save money for us all as individuals.
