Hello parents, grandparents, carers and friends of Newberries School.
Welcome to our gift list page. This is where our hard-working teachers can request items for the classroom and outdoor spaces to make the children’s learning more engaging, interesting and ultimately more fun.
As you’re probably well aware, Newberries receives minimum levels of government funding, which is why a list like this is so important to ensure the children get the most out of their education. This term the PTA asked all the teachers to compile a list of everything their classroom is lacking. Anything from small items, such as colouring pens and classroom games, to larger items, such as classroom furniture and projectors.
A well as having the opportunity to purchase these items in our shop for the teachers to use, there is also the option to make a one-off payment or a regular standing order to the school which would ensure a continued and longer-term standard of provision. A little bit like buying from a wedding gift list… minus the casserole dishes!
Any donation you can make will be very gratefully received and will make a huge difference to the children’s daily life at our wonderful school.
The Newberries PTA
Please note, this is not a shop and no physical goods will be dispatched. Once you place an item in your basket and complete the checkout process, the total cost of your order will be sent to The Newberries Parent Teacher Association (registered charity number 1047300) as a donation. The funds raised will then be used by the PTA to purchase the required goods on behalf of the school. This method is to enable the school to claim gift aid on donations, where appropriate, in order to maximise the value of donations.
