Welcome to The Kingsway Association
What is The Kingsway Association?
We are The Kingsway School’s Parent Teacher Association. We aren’t involved in organising fund raising events as we rely solely on family contributions. That means no more organising and paying for Summer/ Christmas fairs, Bran Tub donations, Bring a Bottle, etc! The family contribution is £10.00 per quarter.
We have an informal meeting once per term. Here we;
- Decide on bids from the school
- Hear the latest school news
- Have a Q&A session with the Headteacher
Monday 13th January 2020, 6:30pm in Foxland Canteen.
What do The Kingsway Association do with your contributions?
We try to help as many students as possible by providing the extras that local authority funding doesn’t cover. Our Headteacher Mrs Lowe receives bids from Heads of Department which she presents to us at the termly meetings. The Kingsway Association then allocates the funds it has available.
What have The Kingsway Association been able to provide?
- Whole School: A second defibrillator
- PE: Competition kit for our excellent Trampolining Team
- Inclusion & Diversity: Allotment/greenhouse equipment
- Science: Molecular modelling kits
- Gifted & Talented: Access to the Model UN programme
- Design & Technology: Edible Ink Printer and Trophies for competitions
- Whole School: 70 Chromebook laptops, providing an invaluable classroom resource
What do we need from you?
The Kingsway Association is here for all students at The Kingsway School and we need your support. We can only keep providing the extras for students with the help of family voluntary contributions.
THE MORE SUPPORTERS WE HAVE, THE MORE MONEY WE RAISE FOR OUR CHILDREN
