Charity description

Hade Edge School logo
Hade Edge Junior, Infant & Nursery School is a small semi-rural school (98 pupils from a community of 700 people). The Friends Group (PTA) fundraise to provide additional resources to enhance the educational opportunities for the pupils.

There has been a rapid increase in pupil numbers leading to pressure on the facilities, particularly the school hall.

The governors of the school have approved a plan for construction of a New School Hall, which would be double the size of the existing hall.

Building work commences on Oct 17th. However, this project is not a priority for Kirklees Council and the funding for it is coming from the existing school budget but this falls short by approx. £30k.

Fundraising is difficult within a small community. We really need to get this hall built as quickly as possible so that our children can benefit now and in years to come. So please donate to our cause. We can’t do it without you.

The existing hall is used for a multitude of purposes and these are compromised by the lack of space:

1. Hade Edge often has extremes of bad weather. Thus, PE lessons are often held in the school hall. With limited space available the variety of exercise is restricted. We want to include exercise that is physically challenging within the school curriculum, whatever the weather.

2. School assemblies, plays and concerts are an integral part of school life and are used to celebrate pupils’ success. We want to invite parents and the wider community to these events.

3. Fundraising Events that involve the wider community such as our Christmas and Spring Fairs are severely limited on space leading to crowded events which then become unattractive. We want to be more creative with our events with enough space for everyone to attend. It will also allow us to explore holding other events and allow the hall to be opened up to community use.
