VCF Superheroes Club

Introducing the Voluntary Contribution Fund (VCF) Superheroes Club at our school – your chance to make a meaningful impact!


Discover the VCF: Established by our dedicated Governors over 15 years ago, the VCF plays a crucial role in supporting teaching and learning. It's the key to shaping the future of education at our school.


Class Size Challenge: We believe in smaller class sizes (only 28 students) for personalized attention, but this commitment comes with a cost of losing funding for two children annually, around £60,000. Your support is essential to maintain this quality of education.


Thank You, Parents: A heartfelt thanks to parents contributing to the VCF. Your continuous support fills our hearts with gratitude.


Monthly Gift Recommendation: While the amount is up to you, we suggest £10 per month per child. This small monthly donation significantly supports our school's budget.


Give As You Earn: Explore Payroll Giving for a hassle-free way to support the VCF directly from your paycheck. Check with your HR/payroll department for details.


Easy Contributions: Donating is simple. You can contribute monthly through our JustGiving page or setup a standing order via the forms below.


VCF vs. PTA Contributions: Understand the difference – PTA enhances student experiences, while VCF directly supports teaching and learning.


Gift Aid Boost: If you're a British taxpayer, amplify your contribution through Gift Aid, allowing us to claim an extra 25p for every £1 donated.


Confidential Management: Managed by the PTA, the VCF's day-to-day administration ensures utmost confidentiality by the School Business Manager.


Your Choice, Your Support: Remember, contributing to the VCF is entirely voluntary, handled discreetly.


Let's Connect: For questions or more information, reach out to our Headteacher, Mrs. Fenella Reekie, via the school office at 01628 482734 or


Thank You for Being Heroes: Your role in our school community is invaluable. Together, we're making a significant difference in our children's education
