Building Fund

Why do we need a Building fund?


The Diocesan Schools Building Fund (DSBF) was introduced in September 2000 in order to provide the contribution needed towards building and repair projects at all Voluntary Aided Schools in the Diocese of Portsmouth.  All schools are allocated capital funding each year, but church schools only receive 90% of their allocation.  To cover the remaining 10% we ask parents for a donation of £10 per child per term.


In return for making this contribution, we have access to a larger fund of money for building projects.  The scale of the project is not limited to the funds available to the school.


Past School Projects


Past projects include the building of the Woodlands Early Years Centre, installation of the Multi Use Games Area, repairs to the drainage, boilers, hall heaters and rooves and the improvement of lighting and security of the school grounds.


In total this amounts to over half a million pounds worth of work that the school could not have afforded.
