The Little Heath School Foundation is a charity and was established by a Charitable Trust Deed dated 30th May 2003.
The charity is governed by a Board of Trustees (the Governors of the School) and its objects are
“To advance the education of children in particular by the provision and maintenance of the School being a voluntary aided secondary school and also by the provision of resources, equipment, teaching and facilities for education in addition to those provided out of public funds”
The principle activities of the Foundation are:
- Fund raising through voluntary donations from parents and friends
- Fund raising through targeted fund-raising events organised by pupils and staff
- The holding of certain government grants intended for the further development of the premises and infrastructure of the school and making these available to the School as and when required.
The LHS Foundation was able to fund the acquisition of a new 16 seat mini-bus and has supported a number of projects in school over the years. Most recently, the internal fit out of the new Sixth Form Centre was largely funded by the Foundation. The new building is a fantastic and much needed facility for the school and its completion would not have been financially possible if it was not for the support provided by the Foundation.
We would encourage all parents and carers to help continue the work of the Foundation by making an annual voluntary donation per family. For a number of years a donation of £15 has been suggested, but the school appreciates that families are not all in the same financial position and therefore their ability to make a contribution will vary. Any contribution, however large or small, will be very much appreciated and will be put to good use.
Please note that the Foundation is able to recover Gift Aid on all such donations and is also able to access matching funds where available. For further details or assistance with donations, please contact the School Finance Office.
