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.
In the past St Bernadette’s has benefited from a number of projects which have been funded through the Diocesan Building fund scheme.
These have included:
• Essential roof repairs
• Resurfacing of the playgrounds
• Installation of new windows
• Upgraded toilet facilities
• Improvement to the Reception play area
You can pay through the ParentMail payments system, you will find it in your basket.
