Holy Trinity C of E Primary School

Governors Capital Fund

Governors Captial Fund (£25 per child per term)

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.  

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

Payments are collected through ParentMail on a termly basis.

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.
