Governors Subscription Fund (£18 per child per term or £54 for the whole academic year or £9/£27 for Nursery children)
Holy Trinity is a Voluntary Aided school and as a result, we receive money to pay for staff and resources through the London Borough of Merton. However, as a VA school our capital projects are funded through the Southwark Diocese, with the exception of 10% of the cost of all capital work which is funded by the Governors.
We are fortunate to have a relatively new school building but now, six years after the majority of our expansion work was completed, things are inevitably needing to be fixed or updated. In the past we have worked with the Diocese to replace the boiler, repair drainage, install new fencing and repair our ventilation systems. Whilst these items are not glamourous they are nonetheless vital in providing a safe environment in which children can learn. We also fund projects which have a more visible impact on children and their families including dyslexia-friendly and sensory equipment as well as Mindfulness training for pupils. If funds allow, we hope to now fund a new sound system for the hall which would dramatically improve the ability of parents to hear what their children are saying in class assemblies and nativity plays and of course be used in the school on a regular basis.
Like other VA schools we ask parents to contribute to the Governors Subscription Fund which we use to pay our 10% contribution to the Diocese (approximately £8000 per year) and to provide additional money for school improvement. Our only source of income to the Governors Fund is parental contributions.
How and When to Pay
For the first time we have been able to set up payments on ParentMail and payments for the academic year 2017-18 should now be visible in ParentMail (look in ‘payments’, then ‘shop’, then ‘donations’). You have the option to pay the full amount in one go, or to pay in termly instalments. Gift Aid can be claimed on the payment to the Governors Subscription Fund, so please select ‘Gift Aid’ in the on-line shopping basket if you are a UK taxpayer. It is also possible to pay by cheque at the school office.
Please note that if you select ‘Gift Aid’ you are agreeing to the following statement: “If I select ‘Gift Aid’, I confirm that I am a UK Income or Capital Gains taxpayer. I have read this statement and want the Holy Trinity Governors Fund to reclaim tax on my donation, given on the date shown. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax / or Capital Gains tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of my donations it is my responsibility to pay any difference. I understand the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I have given.”
We wish to reiterate that these are voluntary payments and we are very aware that not all families are in a position to make these contributions, particularly those with more than one child at the school. We would be grateful for any contribution you feel able to make, however large or small, and if you have any questions with regard to making payments please speak with the team in the school office.
Thank you for all of your support.
