Firs 'Fund It' Appeal

Welcome to the Firs 'Fund It' page, please see below for details on how you can help and how to donate.

Please visit our 'Fund It' Events page on the left for detailed Information on our fundraising plans.

Target £50,000

Money Raised so far £4,418

 

Capital bid success brings exciting opportunities for the School!

The fantastic news that the school was successful in its bid to the Education Funding Agency means that we are now in position to start work on building the replacement for Hazel Classroom!

In securing this bid the school accessed two pledges one from Central Bedfordshire Council and another from Bedford Education Trust

The success of this bid also presents the school with an exciting opportunity to add its own fundraising, grants and donations to the monies received and to build an additional classroom so that year three will have its own self contained area in line with all other year groups.  This will enhance the team working and sharing of resources for the staff and pupils in year 3.

These plans will release the present Elm classroom so that the school can realise its dream to redesign this area in to a Library and group space. We are sure that all parents will agree that this will be a brilliant facility that will benefit all the children at The Firs.
