Donations and Contributions
Donations, Contributions and PTA
School welcomes parent donations and relies on these to give children 'nice to have' and wider enrichment opportunities (including those items highlighted in the Hollymount Entitlement letter).
Termly contributions towards the 'Hollymount Entitlement'
Every term the teachers set up a trip and curriculum day that compliement their curriculum. This comes with a cost and we ask parents to help support this by contributing via Arbor.
As this is an optional donation we do not issue this as a debt but ask parents to sign up and contribute. A guide on how to do this is here https://www.hollymount.org/Hollymount-Entitlement/A_parent_guide_to_signing_up_for_trips_and_contributing_towards_the_cost.pdf
You can also always see the trips and curriculum days you are contributing towards on this page - https://www.hollymount.org/Hollymount-Entitlement/ These donations go towards enriching the children’s learning and form a key part of what makes Hollymount a supportive and exciting learning environment.
Monthly donation via local giving (you can claim gift aid with this)
Some parents support by giving a monthly donation that is made via Local Giving - this fund is paid directly through the PTA and then donated to the school. These donations can be given as a one off or monthly donation of your chosen amount and the school then uses these for one off projects, small resourcing such as playground equipment or to help top up the entitlement fund shown above
The link can be found here - https://localgiving.org/charity/hollymountpta/
Nursery collect £10 per term to help fund the enrichment and play based resources in the classroom.
This is an option on Arbor to make a one off voluntary donation that goes directly to the school (you can not claim gift aid) and is used in the similar way as the local giving donations above.
As always, we are very grateful for any additional donations received, which are used to enhance children’s learning and overall experience of school.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to speak to us directly.
