Friends of Claygate Primary School

The Friends of Claygate Primary School is a Registered Charity No. 1172759, which was set up in 2017 to provide additional resources to enhance the educational experience of children at Claygate Primary School. School budgets continue to be increasingly stretched, so the need for further support from regular contributions from parents is ever more critical.

We have an online donation system via the Charity Aid Foundation. We ask you to make a voluntary contribution of £15 per month per child with £30 for 2 or more children. If you are a tax payer, you can get tax relief if you donate through Gift Aid. This also allows us to claim basic rate tax of 20% on your donation, at no cost to yourself. The suggested contribution has not increased since it was established in 2017.

Here is the link to access the donation form:

The contributions from parents are making a significant difference :
