Friends of Dean Valley Voluntary Fund
The fund is a charity maintained by contributions from the Friends of Dean Valley – parents, grandparents and others who wish to help.
The purpose of the fund is to provide an additional source of funding for the provision of facilities and educational resources for the benefit of all our children. The fund is used to support some of the activities in the school that have now become essential. For example:
-Outdoor Learning resources
-Specialist coaching activities
-Additional equipment in Technology
-Enhanced IT provision
-Subsidies for school trips
-Curriculum enrichment resources
-The Counselling Service
-Visiting artists, authors, theatre groups
-Whole schools visits
