This is new to us and so we have no pre-set notion as to how much parents will donate. Our view is that anything extra will be helpful and greatly appreciated. We can calculate that if half of all our families contributed £20 a month then the scheme would generate well over £100,000 per year. If 30% of families donated £15 it would generate more than £50,000. But the honest answer is we don’t know.
What we do know is that we will report to parents twice a year, to give everyone a full account of what money has been raised, and the projects identified to receive funds. We will be totally transparent about every aspect of the PCF.
