St James’s is a voluntary-aided faith school which allows the freedom to set our admission criteria. Of course, this comes at a price and we have an obligation to fund 10% of our capital budget.
We do this via the ‘Governors Fund’ where we ask parents to contribute. We don’t stipulate or mandate this but instead prefer to encourage all families to contribute what they can. If most families contributed £10 per child per month, then this would cover our obligations each year, at current numbers.
We also collect Gift Aid for all donations – which can be an additional 25%. To do this, we need you to complete a Gift Aid form and return it to the school either in bookbags or to the office. You only need to do this once for all your children in the school, for all the years they are here – easy!
Please follow the link below to download the Gift Aid Declaration form.
We want to make contributing as easy for you as possible so there are lots of ways to do this:
- Follow the links to set up a monthly direct debit in seconds - which can set up now to cover your time in the school.
