Governors’ Fund for Buildings and Maintenance
As a Church (aided) School, we have a responsibility for maintaining and improving our school buildings and we are helped with a grant from the Government for 90% of the costs. This means that we have to contribute 10% ourselves. We do this by asking all parents to contribute to the "Governors' Fund" each year. A leaflet about the Fund can be seen here.
From September 2017 we have made arrangements for you to pay by monthly direct debit to make it far easier to ensure that payments don't get forgotten and spread the cost over the whole year - and it is just £2.50 per month per child. You can of course still pay via ParentPay or by cash/cheque at the school office.
To set up a direct debit, please use this link to our payment partner, "GoCardless":
( click link or copy and paste into your browser) and complete the on-line form. It is very easy and straightforward. It would be a great help to the school/governors if you could also complete the slip from the leaflet and return it to school.
Cheques should be made payable to ‘St Michael’s Governors’ Fund’ and placed in clearly labelled envelopes with the payment slip / Gift aid declaration from the leaflet.
