St Marys CE Primary Lewisham

School Fund

As a Voluntary Aided School we ask for an annual contribution of £30.00 Diocesan Fund. This should be paid before your child starts school and then every September after that. You may wish to pay by standing order – a downloadable form is available. £10.00 a term can be paid if preferred.

School Fund standing order form

The reason we ask for this contribution is that we do not receive help from Lewisham for any repairs and maintenance to the outside of the School building. The Southwark Diocese administer an External Maintenance Scheme based on a pattern of voluntary parental giving, providing a fund for governors from which their 10% contribution is required for maintenance projects. The remainder of the money collected is used to enable the school to help pupils where needed i.e.  to part finance school trips/journeys.

It is part of your commitment when sending your child to a church school.
