At Coopers School we are committed to creating the best learning environment possible for our community. Central government provides funds for the basics, such as buildings, teaching staff and essential resources, but the school needs more than this to provide the exceptional and diverse range of opportunities we offer. Without support from parents and carers, this range of opportunities would be difficult to maintain.
Friends of Coopers school supports the school by raising funds for school projects that will enhance and enrich your children's lives. These range from smaller items such as school equipment to major building works. The Gift Aid Scheme is a very effective way of helping to raise money and by virtue of our status as a charity, we can also claim Gift Aid on donations made by UK tax payers and this increases the value of your donation by 25%. Further details on Gift Aid are below.
We are very aware of the increasing economic pressures been placed on families but we would ask that you consider making what would be a most welcome and appreciated contribution. £5.00 per month is a suggested contribution, but contributions can start from as little as just £2 and month the amount that you wish to donate is for you to decide: you can pay monthly by standing order. If every parent of every child in the school donated just £5 per month, with the benefit of added Gift Aid, we would raise over £90,000.00 for the whole year.
