Worth Less Campaign

As mentioned in the February newsletter, a group of Dorset headteachers have formed a campaign called Worth Less aimed at getting a fairer funding in education.
They are getting increasingly worried about the financial position of Dorset schools and feel that parental support is crucial to getting action on this matter. You can read the letter sent to the Chancellor or the Exchequer here.

You can also look at the School Cuts website to see the likely effect on local schools’ future budgets.

Our Uganda Link

Since setting up our link with a partner school in Uganda we have enjoyed visits to and fro, lovely learning opportunities for our children – spiritual, social and academic. We are very proud of this relationship and its place as a core part of our school. So far, our fundraising activities have helped raise over £20,000 for this most worthy cause. Thank you to all who have supported us over the years. You can see some of the Uganda stories here.
