Friends of Fort Royal
The Friends of Fort Royal is a Registered Charity (No.504033) raising funds to benefit the children at Fort Royal. The friends is much more than simply fundraising. The friends exist to provide closer links between home and school. It’s an excellent way of bringing staff, parents/carers and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common good.
Being a registered charity we have the benefit of being able to apply for gift aid, receive donations from local and national companies and able to apply for grant money from charitable trusts.
My role at the School is to try and make links with local charities, businesses and educational establishments. To work in partnership together and raise both awareness of and of course money for Fort Royal. I am happy to come out to groups and give a short presentation or informal chat to anyone that is interested in our school.
Our staff have a ‘wish list’ of items that the school would like to provide funding for. Sometimes these will be a result of the children’s asking for something in particular or resources to improve an area of the curriculum or school environment. These ‘extras’ are not provided by the schools budget but help the children’s learning experience as good as we can make them!
