What’s the SMILE Fund?
All Catholic Voluntary Aided Schools must raise a voluntary fund from parents, governors and friends to cover at least 10% of the cost of repairs and improvements to the school building and to fund extra facilities and activities for the children.
This is the ’ SMILE Fund. It relies on donations from parents, governors, teachers and friends.
The school receives funding from the Government to cover salaries, educational materials and other essentials. But this does not cover all our costs and without this fund we would not be not able to undertake essential repairs and improvements
How can you help?
To allow us to continue this work, we are asking each family for a voluntary donation of £15 each term.
You can pay:
- by cash or cheque (payable to St Joseph’s Governors’ Fund); or
- electronic transfer or direct debit (account no 01292390, sort code 30-94-77).
- Payments can be made:
- each term (£15 each term); or
- annually (£45 each year).
Please also let us know if you would be interested in running a fundraising event.
All contributions are warmly welcomed.
From the Governors at St Josephs, for the children…
