Making £nds Meet

 It is a sad fact that government funding for Pate's, and many other schools across the country, has been decreasing year on year. We now face such extreme revenue pressures that we have no alternative but to direct our entire fundraising efforts to help the 'revenue pot', rather than to purchase additional resources. 

For the last academic year we faced £616,000 worth of cuts and cost increases, in comparison to the 14/15 year funding levels. We were tasked by governors to set a balanced budget for the year 15/16 and as such we had 2 avenues: raise more income and make significant cuts.
We were able to secure some additional funding and we are delighted that Pate’s Foundation support has come back on line after a 3 year hiatus, but we were still faced with a shortfall of £140,000. Making £nds Meet was launched in April 2015 to meet this and subsequent years’ shortfalls in our funding, rather than putting in place savage cuts. We set an initial target.
