What is the Linton Heights Fundraising Committee and what does it do?

The Fundraising Committee at Linton Heights is comprised of parents, teachers and staff. Its role is to encourage closer links with between home and school as well as raising much-needed funds for the school.

In the last couple of years, the team has organised quiz nights, Christmas and summer fêtes and uniform sales.
For the children, there are school discos, film nights, cake sales, sponsored sports events,  as well as seeing Father Christmas in his amazing grotto.

Who can join?

All parents of children at our schools are automatically eligible to join the committee – just by being a parent!

What commitment is required?

No formal commitment is required – parents are encouraged to help as and when, they can. Requests for help may be made in the newsletter especially around the time of our fêtes (our major fundraising events of the year). Some parents are able to come into school during the day in the week before to help with the fête set up. Others are able to take things home to fold, number, wrap up or prepare in the evenings at home. Parents out at work during school time are often able to help set up, clear away or man stalls on the fête day. Or some are able to offer their expertise – produce banners promoting the fête, for example.

If you would like to come along to a fundraising meeting, help out at an upcoming event, or suggest ways to raise or spend funds, it would be good to hear from you!

It is a great opportunity to be play a bigger role in our school community as the Fundraising Committee helps provide the extras to enhance the children’s learning journey.

What do we spend funds on?

We work with the headteacher to provide the finance for areas not covered by the school’s standard budget. The main criteria is that areas to be funded should benefit as many children as possible.
Recent funding was a large contribution to the construction of the new art room, outdoor play equipment and the purchase of decodable phonics books which match our phonics scheme.


If you would like to help, do email the school office with contact details, or contact Mr Wilson (Y6 teacher / school Fundraising Committee lead)  who will pass on your message to a member of the fundraising committee.
