Thought some folks with kids going to the Charter School ED or who are thinking about the school might be interested in this article on Around Dulwich about the Awards for All grant the school has received. The grant will be used to improve the playground at the temporary site through a container garden, sports equipment and a mural... all of which will be moved to the permanent site when it's ready!

that's great news. Well done to the parents for achieving this.

It will make a big difference to the children at break time.

Thanks - it was very much a collaborative effort. We set up a fundraising committee separate from the Friends Group (which does all the community fundraising and events like the book drive, summer walk, curry night etc). The fundraising committee has reps from the senior leadership team, parents with professional fundraising experience for charities & arts organisations, governors and the Friends Group.

Parents with fundraising expertise draft the bids which are then finalised and signed off by the school. So the school is responsible for the oversight of the funds and ensuring project management and evaluation happens in line with the expectations of the funders. We have two parents with extensive Trusts & Foundations expertise but we could do with parents with corporate fundraising & major donor expertise on the committee so if any parents with those skills sets are joining the school, message me please!
