Dear Parents and Carers,
Financially, the climate for schools – particularly for stand-alone academies like us, is not looking very positive at the minute.
You may have read in the press about schools making cuts and having to take difficult decisions in order to balance the budget and here at Long Bennington I think it is fair to say that we too are feeling the pinch.
We would therefore like to harness the fantastic ideas and fundraising powers of our parents –and I am aware that many of you recently have mentioned that you would be keen to get on board to help fundraise for our fabulous school. We have got a core group of very committed parents already, however I know that there have been lots of you enquiring how you can get involved in supporting the school.
I would like to invite you to a meeting where we can examine the capacity within the existing body of parents for re-launching the FSA (Friends of the School Association) and see if we can work together to make our school an even greater place for our children!
If you are interested and would like to get involved, please come to the school hall on Wednesday, 1st February at 6.30pm. All of you are very welcome!
Mrs R J King
