Special School Fund

 Our children benefit from some excellent facilities and generous allocations of additional adult support. We are keen to provide high quality resources across the whole curriculum, ensuring that children here have access to an excellent, well-resourced education full of memorable experiences. Giving children access to the right opportunities and providing high quality resources make a real difference to their progress. Parents play a big part in helping us to create an environment which promotes and supports learning in exciting ways.

The realities of funding for schools

Each year we identify essentials which the school can afford to provide from the main budget and other funds direct from government sources. Then we identify projects for which we can seek sponsorship or make use of donations.

Special School Fund

Many of the new resources we have been able to provide have come as a result of donations to the Special School Fund. Parents at Tadworth contribute voluntarily to the fund through monthly Standing Order Contributions of as little as £5 a month, though the amount given is up to the individual. Our PTA also works hard to fundraise for specific projects. The support of parents at this school is invaluable and has sustained the school in growing and developing.

 With the Special School Fund as little as £5 a month goes a long way. The Fund is set up to maximise tax advantages and so £5 is worth considerably more than that to us.

  • £5 could pay for a new, good quality book per month. Children of all ages need a constant supply of attractive books in order to become motivated readers.
  • Teaching science and technology, especially electricity, magnetism and control technology, require expensive resources, particularly if we are to have enough for whole class participation. We continue to invest in this important area.
  • We aim to invest at least £10,000 per year in developing and maintaining resources for computing.

 These are just a few examples of where the Special School Fund could make a huge difference to the success of children.

 Confidentiality

The names of contributing families and the amounts of individual contributions are kept completely confidential. Whether a parent contributes or not will in no way affect the way any child is treated at school. The choice is yours, but with your help we can provide a very special education for every child.

 Special School Fund donation forms are available to download here or from the Front Reception Desk in school
