Fund Raising Committee


We have a very active Fund Raising Committee who arrange a number of events each term.

Funds raised by the committee are used for the benefit of all the children at Derwent Vale.
For example, to simply hire a coach to take children on a school trip costs up to £300 -
a huge amount before anything else has been added.

Children benefit greatly from these trips, they bring learning to life and allow a deeper understanding of what they are being taught at school.

New members on the committee are welcomed, so please look out on the weekly Newsletter for dates of meetings and planned events!



A constitution for the new Derwent Vale Fundraising Group has been set up to raise funds for school.

We are looking for new members, are you interested?

Our first project is to install a new adventure playground in the school grounds.

With this in mind we are asking for children to design an adventure playground to inspire our planning!

Entries to be handed in to the office by Wednesday 1st November and discussed and shared with the School Council.

These were a huge success.

There were many fantastic designs for the decorate an egg competition.

The craft afternoon was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended and the designs to safely drop an egg from a height were amazingly creative.

Huge thanks also go to the fundraisers for planning and running the fun activities.

The Easter Crafts Day raised a massive £602.47 and the Egg drop & decorating £73.

Well done everyone!
