Points of note 

  • The accounts run from September 2019 to August 2020

  • The JustGiving amount is not the full balance as the amounts are transferred periodically as they are donated (and as Gift Aid is processed).

  • The School Lottery can generate more in one year operating with minimal work than the Christmas Fair, this needs a relaunch to encourage new participants.

4. Year Ahead

  • As discussed in the Chair’s report, many of our plans will have to remain virtual.

  • At this point, it would be unrealistic to expect us to be able to hold a Christmas Fair so we should plan for alternative events and fundraisers.

  • Whilst the lockdown is in place, our events will be centred around activities and supportive actions

  • We will return to full fundraising activities when it is safe to do so. 

  • There are three Promethean ActivPanels being installed ready for the return to school and we are still committed to funding another 2 before the next AGM.

  • We anticipate that the needs of the school might well change and we will be open to other requests for help.

6. Questions

7. Any Other Business

  • Report from the school

All efforts greatly appreciated, the virtual support for the pupils has made such a big difference for so many families.

School and staff have felt really supported by FRPS and once again, a massive thank you for installing what will be 7 ActivPanels by the time the children return.

School is looking forward to working with FRPS in the coming year and seeing what new events and ideas you come up with.
