We are a small village primary school situated in rural Dorset. We have an open-door policy, where parents and families are actively encouraged to come into the school and where everybody is made to feel welcome. We are committed to providing high standards of learning for all children, following a varied and engaging curriculum.
Our school PTA is made up of a small group of dedicated parents that volunteer their time and energy to fundraising and working in partnership with the school. These people make a real difference to the school and the children; however, they have struggled to keep our fundraising going during the pandemic, the effects of Covid-19 and lockdown has stopped all our normal fundraising activities.
Having the opportunity of being a featured cause on TheGivingMachine is fantastic news for us all at Shillingstone Primary School. With the help of TheGivingMachine and being the cause of the month we are hoping we can boost our fundraising in these difficult times, every penny raised is used to support our school and benefit our children’s education.
Hopefully, with the help of all you giving heroes we will be able to raise money to improve buildings and playgrounds, help fund educational field trips, special events and activities, and provide necessary resources and equipment for all the children to use.
