Chair of Governors Letter - Capital Fund

15 July 2022 (by Mark Burton (M.Burton))

Dear Parent/Carer

Cardinal Heenan Capital Fund

Cardinal Heenan is a happy and successful school committed to helping all its pupils achieve their best, in academic studies, in sports, in music and in other extra-curricular activities within a caring Catholic environment.

We are fortunate in having a well maintained building in which to work and study. However, we have plans to develop the school to make it even better and to give additional opportunities to your child and to all our pupils. We need your help to make these plans happen. Please give us your support.

You may be aware that Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School is a Voluntary Aided School. This means that the Governors must raise 10% of all the money needed for capital development work. This means that, for every £90 in government grants received for capital work, we must raise £10 so we can invest £100 in your child’s school. We raise our component of the Contribution through the Cardinal Heenan Capital Fund. We can then access the Government grants which will pay for capital developments.

To keep administrative costs to a minimum I am asking you to contribute to the Cardinal Heenan Capital Fund on a monthly basis. The amount you contribute is for you to decide but I would ask you to consider one of the following options: £5 or £10 per child (up to a maximum of two children per family).

Please show your commitment to our school by completing the Standing Order and a Gift Aid Form. Gift Aid will help the

School to maximise your contributions at no extra cost to you. Both of these forms should be returned to school.

Thank you in anticipation of your support.

Yours faithfully

Michael Gardner

Chair of Governors
